If you take a peek into our barrel room, you’ll notice stacks on stacks of barrels, each filled with a different beer, waiting patiently until it’s ready for release. We created the Forgotten Barrel Society to get exclusive, limited bottles into the hands of passionate fans of our wild, sour beers.

Ten Members-Only Bottle Releases
As a Forgotten Barrel Society member, you’ll receive 10 exclusive bottles of sour beers that are handpicked by us for members. These beers are included in your membership costs and could include lambics, krieks, coolship beers, blends, and a wide range of other aged, funked up sours. Because these beers can take a long time to create, we don’t know when they’ll be available for you and we won’t have a set release schedule.
These beers will be held for 60 days for pickup in the tasting room during our regular hours. If you do not live locally, you can assign a proxy to pick up your allotment of bottles when you purchase your membership.
If there are any extra member-exclusive beer bottles, Society members will have the opportunity to purchase additional bottles on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Society members receive a 10% discount on all beer and merchandise purchased in the Tasting Room, including growler fills, bottles, and crowlers during the membership year. The discount does not apply to any purchases made by your proxy.
Exclusive Membership Event
Each year, we’ll throw a Forgotten Barrel Society members-only party that you won’t want to miss. Stay tuned for more details as the event gets closer.
Each Forgotten Barrel Society membership includes a special Society glass and t-shirt, as well as a 750ml growler, which can be filled with any beer on tap. You’ll also receive a Membership ID card.
Society members get to skip the line at any public bottle or crowler releases. Simply show up, flash your Membership ID card, and jump to the front to line.
Forgotten Barrel Society memberships begin on January 1, 2019 and will expire on December 31, 2019. All bottles and merchandise not picked up by March 1, 2020 will be forfeited and made available to other members.
First Right To Re-enroll in 2020
Members will have the first chance to re-enroll in the Forgotten Barrel Society each year. Any spots that are open from members who choose not to re-enroll will be opened up to the public for purchase at a later date.
Only one membership is allowed per person. If a member is found to have multiple memberships, we reserve the right to cancel and refund the unused portion every one of that person’s memberships.
The beer included in the Forgotten Barrel Society is meant to be consumed. Drink the beer, enjoy the beer, or trade it with friends. The beers are not to be resold. Licensed retailers and distributors can only purchase membership solely for personal consumption and not for resale or distribution. If a society member is found illegally reselling Wild Mind beer, their membership will be canceled.
