Who can join?

CA residents, 21+

How long is the membership?

Feb 2017 - Feb 2018.

How do I purchase a membership?

Visit this link or buy in the taproom. Memberships are $99.99.

Why $99.99?

We want to be clear - with the initial bump in revenue we plan to continue outfitting the taproom with more comfortable seating, atmospheric lighting, and upgrades for the staff like a dishwashing machine & more glassware. By becoming a Freak you become an integral part in our mission.

Can I buy one for a friend?

Yes. The option is available at purchase to designate gift recipient.

Can I split one with a friend?

No. Since this is the first time we are launching this club we are keeping it straightforward and simple to track successes and future challenges.

How do I pick up my AI apparel, gear, beer, and merch?

All AI apparel and merch must be picked up by member (or their trustee) at the brewery with a valid ID. Please allow 48 hours for processing.

Can I send a trustee to pick up my beers for me?

Yes. In the application, you can specify the full name and email address of the person who will be picking up your gear & beer. Please know that, in doing this, you are authorizing the release of all Freak items to this person. We cannot take responsibility for ensuring this person's trustworthiness, and are not liable for what happens to the items once they leave the brewery.

Do I have to designate a trustee now / can I change my trustee?

You don't have to designate a trustee during the application, but we recommend that you do if you plan on having someone else pick up beers for you. You can definitely add a trustee or change your trustee at a later date as well. Email us at info@aleindustries.com. This can be done anytime during your membership. Please keep in mind that we only allow 1 trustee per membership, and we ask that you notify us of any trustee changes at least 48 hours in advance of that person coming by the taproom to pick up your gear and/or beer.

What happens if the apparel does not fit or arrives damaged?

You have 7 days from purchase to return any defective article of clothing. You have 14 days to return apparel that does not fit as long as it is not damaged in any way.

How long will you hold my beers?

We'll hold any and all of your beers until January 31, 2018. Anything leftover will be considered forfeited, and likely be sold to 2018 Barrel Society members.

Can I buy multiple Memberships?

The Freaks of the Industry Memberships are limited to 1 per individual.

Will I have first dibs for 2018 membership?


Can I cancel or get a refund for my membership?

All sales are final. We cannot issue a refund for any reason. The aim is to ensure that you will never want one.

What do I do if I need to update personal information or if I am unhappy with The Freaks of the Industry in any way?
