Well, we've almost made it to the end of another challenging year, which feels like as good a reason as any to fire up the festive cheer. After all, the Disco Monks From Outer Space are getting into the spirit, so why not join them?
With the country reopening (for the most part) and interstate travel back on the cards (for the most part), we're ramping up for the biggest year ever for our beer club, The Crafty Cabal, in 2022.
We've got our first post-lockdown events lined up in Melbourne and Sydney and are close to locking in more in other cities around the country. After giving away 135 cases of beers plus hundreds of festival tickets to members in 2021, we've no plans to slow down on that front either. And, with 185 deals in place at present at breweries, venues and bottleshops across Australia – and online – we should tick past 200 very soon!
So, as a thank you to all our existing members and a festive welcome to new signups, we're running the first Crafty Cabal Christmas Giftathon!
Every day between December 3 and 9, we'll be picking two winners – one from our existing membership base, one new signup – who will get to choose their prize from two options:
- A limited edition NZ Hops mixed carton featuring beers from 12 different Aussie brewers
- A pair of tickets to next month's Great Australian Beer Festival in Geelong*
Each prize is worth $95 – so pretty much a year's membership fee.
And if you'd like to give yourself – or a mate – the gift of beer that lasts a year this Christmas, you can head here to sign up; just select which gift you'd like from the drop-down list when joining. Once you've signed up, you can start entering competitions, redeeming offers, and register for the upcoming events with CoConspirators, Black Arts, One Drop and Slow Lane (while keeping an eye out for others as we announce them).
Good luck! We'll announce all the winners once the Giftathon is over and look forward to catching up with you in person soon.
*We appreciate the tickets are only really suitable for members in Victoria (or keen travellers), but there's not too many festivals around at the minute for us to pluck from, and think we can agree Victorians have had a rough couple of years.
