Mug Club Changes As Of February 27th, 2017

We recently received a PLCB Clarification letter on Act 39 legislation. This information confirmed Mug Clubs are now legal and allows us to give direct discounts to our Muggers.

For the past 2 years our Brewmaster Artie Tafoya has worked with the Brewers of PA, the PA Restaurant Association, and many PA Senators and Representatives to get Mug Club legislation passed. Although it wasn’t perfect, we are now able to revive some of the benefits that were removed due to past PLCB scrutiny.

PA Act 39 allows retail licensees and breweries to offer a mug club to their patrons and defined a “mug club” as a group organized by a retail licensee or a brewery whose members are entitled to discounted malt or brewed beverages. Membership in the mug club shall be by written application, and the licensee must maintain a written list of active members as part of its records.

Here are the changes we are making to our mug club due to the recent legislative changes:

  1. There will no longer be a $.25 charge on Mug Club Beers! We are now allowed to offer you the Mug Club beer amount at the regular Pint price.
