The featured perk to AWAS membership is access to three special Appalachian Wild Ale bottles that NO ONE ELSE will have access to. These special blends will be brewer’s choice, and will be released to members when our brewer determines that the perfect blends have been crafted, and ready for consumption. Details for these blends will be given one month prior to their “release”. Each member will receive two 750ml bottles of each special blend (4 bottles, 2 types) and one single barrel 500ml bottle of another special blend which do not require payment, as they are included in the price of membership. With that, we do reserve the right to pour a small portion of these blends on draught at our tasting room or at events, which AWAS members are clearly welcome to come and enjoy.
An additional perk of AWAS affords you first right to purchase 6 different brands of our most exclusive Appalachian Wild Ales. This allows for an AWAS member to reserve and pay for bottles without the hassle of waiting in lines or having a fast trigger finger during an internet pre-sale. These brands will be brewer’s choice, and allotment sizes will depend on production levels. Allotment sizes for AWAS members will always be higher than allotments to the general public. The release dates for these brands are undetermined to allow for proper aging and conditioning.
As part of AWAS, you are granted a 10% discount on all non-alcoholic merchandise purchases. This is limited to in house only. This excludes the purchase of alcohol (NC state law prohibited) and future membership dues. North Carolina law directly affects the 10% discount aspect of our incentives. We are currently working on a way to make this incentive legal, or offer everyone an equally fantastic incentive. AWAS 10% discount is given to members only and does not include your trustee, or friends\family joining you at the tasting room.If you have concerns about what the outcome of this incentive will be, please email us at AWAS@fontaflora.com.

First Right of Acceptance to 2018 Membership

Being an AWAS member means never waiting in line (excluding busy, normal service hours in our tasting room) We will have special pickup times for AWAS members or their trustee. All members are allowed to assign one trustee. This trustee must be listed on your membership page, and must present a valid ID when picking up your purchases.
