Dark Horse Brewing Company Mug Club Policy
At Dark Horse, we do our best to ensure that your mug is properly cared for at all times. With over 4100 mugs to manage, we need your assistance to try and assure your mug will (almost) always be hanging in its correct spot. The following is a complete description of how our mug club works along with answers to the most commonly asked questions, generally dealing with missing, stolen (by some peckerhead) or broken mugs.
· YOUR MUG CLUB MEMBERSHIP BENEFITS: Once you purchase your mug, you are in our mug club for life; there are no yearly “dues”. Mugs are currently $4.50 - $5.50 to fill, compared to $4.25 for pints, with each mug averaging 6-7 more ounces than a pint plus the added benefit of being able to get your mug filled with beers that are unavailable to the public in pints. When you purchase your mug, or when a previous card is full, you will receive a Mug Club Card. Each card has 3 rows of 6 “punches”; each time you purchase a mug at regular cost, you will receive 1 punch on your card; every 6th punch gets you a $.50 fill! Wow! However, it is YOUR responsibility to inform your server of your intent to use a $.50 fill(s). You only receive punches for mug fills YOU purchase, and you do not get punches for the purchase of snifters or pints.
QUESTIONS, RULES, ETC.
Your mug is exactly that, YOUR MUG! Your mug is to be used exclusively by you-not your wife, kids, uncle, friend, etc. If we feel you are abusing your Mug Club membership in this manner, we reserve the right to rescind it. This is for both your and our protection-it’s fair to those who paid for membership; we don’t get taken advantage of by non-members. When you purchase(d) a mug, you will be or were asked for a name for our master list; this is the only person who may use the mug. Period. If you are purchasing a mug as a gift, you must give the person’s name that will be using it.
Mugs, without exception, may not be taken out of the taproom and still be eligible for Mug Club membership. We lose all control of the mug at that time, and will not take that responsibility. If you take your mug home for any reason, we will assume you are relinquishing your Mug Club membership and will re-sell your number; to get back in the club, you would be required to pay the $60.00 again, and you would be issued a new number. Bottom line, don’t take it home. You are welcome to purchase a mug to take home, as a gift, etc., but that mug will not be in the Mug Club, nor will it be allowed in the Mug Club in the future without another $60.00 from the recipient and the mug is being left to be hung.
If your mug is missing, please inform your server. When we receive new mugs, an inventory is done and any miss-hung mugs are returned to their proper hook. If your mug is missing, you are eligible to pick out a new mug Monday thru Thursday 9-5p immediately preceding our mug release date at no cost to you.
If we break your mug beyond repair, we will replace it free of charge from our next batch of mugs· Monday thru Thursday 9-5p immediately preceding our mug release date at no cost to you.
If you break your mug beyond repair accidentally, you will pay $30.00 to replace it from the next batch of mugs; if you broke it beyond repair being a knucklehead (our discretion), you pay the full $60.00 and you forfeit your Mug Club benefits until you replace it. Either way, you are eligible to pick out your new mug Monday thru Thursday 9-5p immediately preceding our mug release date at no cost to you.
· UNFORTUNATELY, MUGS ARE SOMEWHAT FRAGILE AND THEY DO GET BROKEN. IF YOUR MUG IS BROKEN BY ANYONE, WE WILL ATTEMPT TO FIX IT BEFORE REPLACING IT. IT MAY BE A LITTLE “FRANKENSTEIN-ESQUE”, AND LESS BEAUTIFUL THAN BEFORE, BUT IF THE VESSEL HOLDS LIQUID, IT STAYS IN BATTLE. IF YOU JUST CAN’T LIVE WITH ITS NEW LOOK, YOU ARE WELCOME TO PURCHASE A NEW ONE AS DESCRIBED ABOVE. WE WILL FIX MUGS AT OUR EARLIEST CONVENIENCE-PLEASE EXERCISE PATIENCE; I.E.: DON’T ASK ABOUT IT EVERY TIME YOU ARE IN. WHEN IT’S FIXED, IT WILL BE ON ITS HOOK. PROMISE.
· Until your stolen or accidentally broken mug is fixed or replaced, you will receive a “Lost/Stolen/Broken” Card which will entitle you to $3 pints and Mug Club card benefits as well. Again, mugs broken because you were being an idiot will not be entitled to these benefits. You must present this card to your server so they can charge you appropriately and to ensure you get your punches.
That’s about it! Please ask your server if you have any further questions. Thank you for being a part of Dark Horse Brewing Company’s Mug Club!
