Batch size

These releases will be under a new label indicating a special reserve series. Consisting of only a fraction of a normal batch size and sourced primarily from a single barrel. The bottle count on these releases will be <500 - 375mL which would be equivalent to about 200 - 750mL as apposed to our typical 1000 - 750mL per batch. The public will have access to some of these bottles but the majority will only go to the Hive. 

BTW Hive members are welcome to come to these releases to purchase additional bottles if desire. 

Online Store

Our online bottle shop gives members the flexibility to purchase the bottles they want, in the quantities they want with no minimum purchase required. Again, all these bottles will be stored with the only request that you pick up all your bottles by the end of the 6 months. 

NO NYC Drop Offs

Unfortunately, due to the increased foot traffic at the farm we will no longer be able to offer NYC drop offs for the Fall term. We are truly sorry for any inconvenience and hopefully members will be able to travel at least once in November or December to pick up all their bottles. As a reminder, we are only 3 miles from the Metro North Poughkeepsie stop and the smaller, lighter and fewer bottles makes traveling with your shares super duper easy! 

Bottle Pick UP

All bottles must be picked up at the farm located in Poughkeepsie. You may pick up during the week by appointment or during our farmstand hours. There is NO MINIMUM PICK UP REQUIRED which means you can store your bottles until you are ready to visit the farm. 

To make an appointment, simply email pickup@planbeefarmbrewery.com to confirm a day and time you will be stopping by. Appointments can be made for any day and don't have to only be during farmstand hours. We try to keep Monday open as the only day we have off but otherwise if we are at the farm then we can make appointments! Please request an appointment at least 24 hours in advance and be sure you receive a confirmation email before heading our way. 

Proxy
You may use a proxy to pick up your beer for you if you are not able to pick it up yourself. Please email pickup@planbeefarmbrewery.com and let me know who will be picking up for you at least 24 hours in advance.
