    Brewery stickers are cool but so are brewery coasters. Not only will we send you a Hog River sticker to slap on your car, you'll also receive a kick-ass Hog River coaster for your beer room table. This is not your average brewery coaster - it's crafted from thick cork making it durable enough to guard your Heady or throw at the person who tries to steal your tasty libation.

    Hog River Brewing Co. Mug Club

    Now let's get down to business. Imagine yourself drinking a delicately crafted Local 35 IPA in our taproom also known as Hartford's Living Room. Don't like IPAs? That's ok, we'll have many styles to please the palate.

    The atmosphere is rustic, industrial yet modern. The vibe is super relaxed and unpretentious. The music is on in the background and the beer is flowing for you and your pals. Show the crowd that you're a founding member of Hog River with your own 20 oz. Hog River mug.

    As a Kickstarter mug club member you get all the aforementioned gifts, a lifetime mug club membership and mug fills for the price of a pint. We recommend you hop on board here because mug club memberships renew annually once our Kickstarter campaign ends.

    The mug club makes an excellent holiday gift for the craft beer fanatic in your life. Mugs will be available upon opening but we can send you a spiffy membership card to present on the big day, if necessary.

    Rock Star Status

    Think you have what it takes to be a rock star brewer? We're going to let you prove it. Besides, we'll be looking for some help in the brewery before long. At this level you get all the lower level rewards and an amazing experience you'll be able to tell your grandchildren about.

    Hog River is offering the opportunity to participate in a collaborative brewing effort with Head Brewer Ben and the other Rock Star contributors. Together, we'll roundtable beer style ideas, discuss ingredients and come up with a kick-ass beer name. Once the ingredients are sourced, we'll get back together to brew up this crazy concoction. When the beer is ready, gather your friends for a party in the taproom to celebrate the fruits of your labor. And, if that's not enough, we'll put your beer out in the market at select accounts so you can impress your nerdiest beer buddy. Cheers to that!

    What's the catch? There isn't one. Just give us a few months to dial in our brand spankin' new brewing system. In the meantime, enjoy your mug club membership in the taproom!

    Hartford Rare Beer Society

    Do you have a soft spot for rare beer? How about all-access private parties where you get to tour our beer cellar and share not-for-the-public bottles with other craft-beer obsessed folks? Or maybe you need a holiday gift for the craft beer fanatic in your life? Well, you're in luck! Hog River can offer you all of the above and more.

    At the $1,000 level you purchase a membership to the Hartford Rare Beer Society. Here's what you get for becoming a Founding Member - hold on to your pants, folks.

    * All the previous gifts
    * Lifetime membership limited to 20 society members
    * Custom membership card made from a barrel stave with your membership number
    * 2 private, catered all-access parties per year. During the party, society members will have full access to our barrel cellar beers as well as a bottle share.
    * First notice of all rare beer releases. Call ahead to reserve your bottles or pick up before they are made available to the public. (4 bottle limit)
    * Hartford Rare Beer Society logo shirt - for society members only

    If you're purchasing as a holiday gift, let us know and we'll send you a spiffy membership card to present on the big day.

    We need a little time to get some of these rare beers brewed and aged. We tentatively plan to throw the first party at least 6 months after opening. In the meantime, come in and enjoy that mug club membership!
