Each member beer is expected to yield additional bottles that members will have the opportunity to purchase. We will also keg some of each member beer which will be available on draft to the public. Bottles not purchased by members in a timely fashion may be sold to the public. We reserve the right to save any additional bottles for special events or other use at our discretion.

We anticipate offering several release of spirit barrel aged beers during the course of the membership year.  Members will have the ability to order a portion of these limited beers online in advance of the public.  The remaining bottles will be sold in the tap room and available to the public.

Members will receive access to an online account on americansolera.com which allows advance purchase of beers for pick-up in the tap room.  Orders must be placed a minimum of 48 hours before the requested pick-up. Members are required to 

schedule a pick-up by using the specified google form.  This form may also be used to assign a proxy. Orders are ready for pick-up when the status in the member’s online account states READY FOR PICK-UP.

We are unable to ship beer.  Advance notice (48 hours) must be given via the google form for ALL pick-ups. Beer must be picked up in a timely fashion and before the set quarterly pick-up deadlines.  All beer not picked up within this window will be forfeited. Orders placed online must show a status of READY FOR PICK-UP in your online account before a pick-up can occur.  An online order is not required for membership allotment beers. All pick-ups will take place at the tasting room located at 1702 E 6th St, Tulsa, OK 74104.

However, this location is still under construction so we will keep you informed over the summer if we anticipate any changes to the date or location of this reception.

    Will they be in the shop portion of the website on the day of purchase? Or a separate link added to a blog post or something? Thanks!

    For those not local, if having to travel, will each release have a required pick up date or is it at all possible to consolidate multiple releases to a specified pick up date to reduce the number of trips. Thanks in advance!

      There are quarterly pick up deadlines and we aim to spread out the releases to one a quarter, but sometimes multiple releases could happen within a quarter. It would likely require several trips. However, you can always assign a proxy. We can accommodate some late pickups within reason if you stay in contact with us and get it approved in advance.

      All the info you would need would go out in an email as well! The facebook group is just for fun, but not required!

    First, HUGE fan of American Solera and Chase (and even that might be a gross understatement). Regarding the Society, before I make a commitment I may not be able to keep (and lose beer as a result), can you tell us (or just me) what the pick-up window (days, weeks, quarterly?) for the membership 12 bottles might be? I am asking as I prefer to not use proxies, if possible, but I don’t live very close.

      We have 4 pick up deadlines per year, once a quarter. Roughly November, February, May and August. If you’re unable to meet a deadline, a proxy can be used or you will need to keep us informed and get your late pick up approved.

    So the beer needs to be picked up on a quarterly basis, does that mean there is a final deadline each quarter when the beer must be picked up prior to?

      Yes, each quarter there is a pick up deadline and beer ordered before a certain date will need to be picked up by that deadline unless otherwise arranged.

    Well, first the website crashed at 9:01. Then, I had a membership in two different carts on different devices by 9:04 and the order wouldn’t process for either one. And now they’re sold out. Waaaah, better luck next year. :'(
