New York City Hive
Thank you for your support! By becoming a Hive member, you will gain access to every brew we produce at Plan Bee while avoiding lines at our farm stand or needing to worry about missing out on releases.

By joining the Hive, you will secure your monthly bottles without having to wait in the farmstand line or worry about missing out on bottles at our releases. You can choose 6 or 12 bottles per month, you will be guaranteed at least one of everything we brew.
By joining the NYC Hive, we will bring down your bottles monthly OR bottles can 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 pick up either in the city or visit the farm.
NYC Drop off:
Each month, we will drive down membership shares to a craft beer bar. It is usually on Sunday from 1-5pm but an email with the exact date/time/location is sent out monthly. Members MUST meet Evan or Emily at the location during the hours of drop off. Bottles cannot be left behind at the bar. To ensure members receive their shares, we need to hand them to the member or the members proxy. Here is a list of bars we have dropped off in the past: GingerMan, One Mile House, Broadway Dive Bar, Rattle n' Hum.
Picking up @ the farm:
You are able to pick up by appointment at the farm. To make an appointment, simply email email@example.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.
You may use a proxy to pick up your beer for you if you are not able to pick it up yourself. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know who will be picking up for you at least 24 hours in advance.
There is a $50 membership fee to join the Hive which covers all the benefits (above). This fee will also help cover our labor and time organizing pick ups & drop offs and it will cover the storage of the bottles until you are ready to pick up! Just as a reminder, there is no minimum pick up required but all bottles must be picked up by the end of the year.
You can pay for your bottles monthly or you can pay for all 5 months upfront. If you decide to pay for all 5 months up front, we will take 50% off your first month (a discount of $45 or $90 depending on your monthly bottle quantity). If you do not wish to pay up front, we will need to keep a card on file which we will automatically charge monthly.
By submitting this form, you are requesting to become a part of the Hive. You will be responsible for paying a one-time, nonrefundable membership fee of $50 which will be collected after your application has been approved. You will receive a confirmation email once approved. Thank you for your support!
