Mug Club Renewal

On Friday was one of the Iron Hill Brewery’s Mug Club Renewal Parties. I decided to go to the one at the Wilmington location (they do different ones at different locations) with Todd, who is also a Mug Club Member.

Iron Hill Brewery

It was a good time, Iron Hill had several special beers on tap, free appatizers, and had a raffle with some give aways. Of the special beers they had Fe10 (yikes, 24oz mugs!), Bourbon Porter, Wee Heavy and an Irish Dry on nitro. I had a BP then an ID then another BP, it is too good!

There Mug Club is pretty good. It used to be $25 a year which was a steal, now it is $35 a year which is still a good price. These are some of the benefits:

  • You receive a $25 Reward Certificate for every 300 points you accrue. Each dollar you spend at Iron Hill gets you 1 point (on food or drink), plus you get a bonus 200 points each year you sign up.

  • You get invited to special Mug Club promotions, about twice a year, where they have deep discounts, special beers, and free grub.

  • You are able to use your mug (24oz) for any pint specials they have.

  • You get your mug filled for the price of a pint.

  • You can use your card/mug at any Iron Hill location.

  • At the end of the year you get to keep your mug! (It makes a great coffee mug.)

This is a totally better deal then the two other “local” brewpubs that I know about. Stewart’s is $50 a year and Dogfish Head is $150 (!!!) a year a believe, both with limited number of mugs and both sell out every year. I am glad to be an Iron Hill Mug Club member.

    Yeah – I TOTALLY have to get my renewal in. It is a great deal and I use it infrequently and see it as a great deal. The $25 fee basically pays for the gift certificate and the rest of the stuff is free – including the awesome mug!
