Join us in our private, members-only Facebook group where we post updates, special announcements, bottle lotteries (for Silver & Blue levels), and more! All announcements will be posted on the group ONLY (no more announcement emails), so join the group to make sure you don’t miss out!

Fancy up your wardrobe with a “The Society of Distinguished Beer Wizards” t-shirt (included in the cost of your membership). Your t-shirt will arrive in October. We will need everyone’s t-shirt size by September 30, 2019. This offer is only for blue-level members who sign up by September 30th.

All Blue Level members will be invited to join us on a brewery tour! We’ll set up the transportation and beer, you come along for the ride, tour, and beer! And yes, we’re really excited about this one because it gives us an excuse (not that we need one) to go on a brewery tour and hang out with our members 🙂 There will be an additional cost for this benefit.

Throughout the year, we may close The Open Bottle for a special occasion, private event, holiday, employee outing, etc. If that day happens to be a day you’d normally receive a benefit, we will post in advance the “rollover” day. 

For example, if we close on a Wednesday because of a holiday,  we will announce Thursday as the “rollover” day for your “Draft taster on Wednesdays” benefit. Rollover announcements will be made via the member Facebook group and are not always the following day.

Rollover days are only available for full days we are closed. So if we close earlier or open later than we normal would, there will not be a rollover day.

The Wizard Manifesto

The Society of Distinguished Beer Wizards is about community-driven craft beer enthusiasm and (most importantly) fun! We enjoy drinking beers with friends, bonding over the variety and nuances of craft beer, creating friendships and teaching newcomers, regardless of differences, about the love of craft beer with open minds (and bottles). We are distinguished beer wizards! If these things are apart of you… join us!
