The beer is ready, the jockey box is complete, the menu is set, all that’s left now is to drink a lot of beer! This Sunday, June 8th, I’ll be bringing a whole bunch of beer (so much beer, you guys!) to The Steep And Thorny Way to Heaven for their monthly Play|Date karaoke-theater event! You’ll be free to sample my Stout, Red and Pale Ales, and the last of my ESB. We’re also being joined by Abby K. Of Nom*Ables, who’s bringing some most excellent pastries and treats for your snacking pleasure. I’m looking forward to seeing what she came up with for the evening.

While the beer samples are free, any donations you choose to bestow upon me will be greatly appreciated, and all monies raised will go toward the goal of eventually opening up the commercial brewery and taproom. So, you know, generosity is encouraged!

On the money-raising front, I’ve also been doing a lot of thinking on different memberships I want to make available. I’ve settled on two tiers of membership, starting with the entry-level MegaPint Club. Your MegaPints club card will get you discounts on each pint you order in the taproom, invites to special MegaPint Club members-only tasting events, even a free pint on your birthday! Membership to this club will be limited, and renewable annually.

Or you can step up to the next level and join the Founders Club. This lifetime membership includes all of the benefits of the MegaPint Club, deeper discounts on merch and growler fills, your name emblazoned on our Founders wall, an invite to our planned annual Founders party, and more!

I’ll be posting pricing and availability information soon, but I can tell you that I’ll be opening the Founders Club up first. But first things first! Come to the tasting party this Sunday and help me empty a few of these kegs, so I can make even more excellent beer for you all! Bring friends, and don’t forget to RSVP!

The Steep and Thorny Way to Heaven is located at SE 2nd & Hawthorne, under the east end of the Hawthorne bridge.
