Initiation Begins With Our Imperial Stout

Every new member receives ingredients (& equipment if needed) to brew the Initiation Imperial Stout. This formidable beer clocks in at 7.8 %. Each glass contains a murky menagerie of chile peppers, cacao nibs, coffee beans & vanilla.

How It Works

Your first month’s shipment is $90 & includes ingredients and equipment to brew 1 gallon of our Initiation Imperial Stout PLUS the Initiation Chest filled with exclusive glassware & accessories.

After your first month, each following month is just $20 + shipping & includes a super-secret, members-only 1 gallon extract beer recipe kit. Recipe kits include ingredients to brew 1 gallon of beer with the equipment from your first month’s shipment. These never-before-seen recipes will never be seen again. Don’t miss out, because each month’s recipe is retired to make way for the next.

Membership also includes access to our digital community. In other words, you’re invited to a private Facebook Group for members to share (& steal) homebrewing knowledge and tips.
