Even before we opened the brewery in 2012, we were fortunate to have amazing support from the community. People followed our Facebook page when we were still under construction, and after launching a Kickstarter campaign in 2011 we found an amazing group of supporters who helped fund our build out. We've always wanted to maintain strong ties with our community, and one of the ways we do this is with the Reuben's Crew. Our mug club includes members who have been with us since our Kickstarter days, people from the Phinney Neighborhood Association's beer committee who approved us to pour at the 2010 PNA Beer Taste, those who visited us in the first few days of us opening, and those who learned about us more recently. But no matter how long people have been members of the mug club, everyone in the Crew is ultimately a friend. They know us well, they give us feedback, and we often enjoy sitting down with them in the taproom to enjoy a pint.
