New and Improved!
Pioneers Beer Club 2019
For those beer enthusiasts who wish to be committed members of the Saltbox Pioneers Club, we are introducing some upgrades!
Effective January 1, 2019:
Members-only Food & Beer Pairings
Craft beer can do amazing things with food, including going places wine cannot go. You’re invited to explore the versatility and flavor compatibility that beer can offer during these invitation-only beer and food pairing sessions. We’ll be partnering with local restaurants and caterers to develop specific tapas-style offerings to match up with the variety of beers being produced at both the Saltbox and King Street breweries (each event may have a small additional fee, depending food being provided.) You’ll be guided through each pairing by one of our highly-trained staff. These events will be scheduled in advance for the entire year so that you can plan your social calendar accordingly!
Exclusive Beer Events
Saltbox New Releases: With the addition of Mike Gripp as our Head Brewer, we’ll continue to explore a variety of beer styles and flavors, including seasonal and specialty brews. As a Pioneer member, you’ll have exclusive access to the first release of each new beer we produce, with a dedicated tasting event in advance of the beer’s release to the general public.
King Street New Releases: With the launch of King Street Beer Company in Bridgewater, we’ll be supporting the production of innovative and diverse beer recipes brewed by local “home brewers” under the “LaHave River Beers” brand. With the supervision and support of our Saltbox brewing team, these local brewers are bound to create something special. Pioneer members will receive an exclusive invitation to the launch party of each new LaHave River Release.
Educational Sessions: Whether you’re a budding brewer, a beer geek, or simply a lover of beer, we’ll be offering a variety of educational events to make you even more beer savvy. Scheduled regularly throughout the year and offered free to Pioneers, our first session in 2019 will be “How to Brew at Home”.
Each special event we host will include a draw for an item of merchandise bearing the Saltbox or King Street Brewery logo.
Discounts on Merchandise
All Pioneers members will receive a 10% discount on all merchandise purchased at the Saltbox or King Street brewery locations (excluding beer).
With your paid membership, you’ll also receive a specially-designed Pioneers Club beer stein. We encourage you to bring your stein whenever you visit our breweries, just to make everyone else jealous!
Cross Membership with King Street Brewing Co.
As a Pioneer Member, you’ll be part of the inner circle of beer enthusiasts who support the “think social, drink local” movement that recognizes beer as a springboard for creating community on the South Shore. A single fee covers all member benefits at both the Saltbox Brewery and King Street Brewing Company. We value your support!
Membership Fee: $50.00 (includes HST). Renewable annually.
AJ MacPherson, our 1st Pioneer!
