FULL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
As a Cellar Cyndicate member, you will receive exclusive bottles from our cellar over the course of the year when the beers become available (a minimum of four bottles, and 10 for Cellar Cyndicate Select members). These beers will be aged and blended specifically for you and other Cellar Cyndicate members; they are not available to the public. In order to maintain quality and give the beer the time it needs, we do not have a set release schedule, and the beers will be released as they are ready. We reserve the right to cellar any excess of the small-batch Cellar Cyndicate exclusive release blends for a vintage release or a later event.
ABILITY TO PURCHASE BOTTLE RELEASES ONLINE:
Cellar Cyndicate Online Presale
As a Cellar Cyndicate member, you will have the right to conveniently purchase additional bottles during a presale on our website. All bottles are sold on a first-come, first-served basis and may sell out. Being a member does not guarantee additional bottles beyond the included membership bottles. We may sell the draft version of a particular release before we sell the bottled version.
BOTTLE PICK-UP WINDOW & PROXIES:
Bottle Pick-up & Pick-up Window
All Cellar Cyndicate bottles and merchandise must be picked up at the taproom selected at the beginning of the membership year (either Pure Project Miramar or Pure Project Vista). We do not ship Cellar Cyndicate beer for any reason.
Bottles and merchandise can be picked up by either the member or their designated proxy, no one else. Both the member or proxy will have to show a valid ID matching the exact membership name or proxy name, and both must be over 21 years old.
Bottles will be held for Cellar Cyndicate members up to the full calendar year, however, we encourage you to pick them up as the bottles are released.
Our taproom gets very busy so we ask that you reach out to us via email at least 48 hours before you come to pick your bottles so we can have it all ready for you when you arrive. Failure to do so may result in a delay or inability to retrieve your bottles at pickup. Any bottles unclaimed by December 31st, 2024 will be forfeited back to Pure Project.
As a Cellar Cyndicate member, you are allowed to designate a proxy. Your proxy will be able to do the following on your behalf:
- Pick up bottles & merchandise
- Attend presale can release dates
Important Note: You are only allowed to change your proxy one time over the course of the year, so please choose your proxy wisely. We are not responsible for you and/or your proxy being out of town on a release date. The release schedules are not set in stone and will shift based on when the beer is ready.
Because the Cellar Cyndicate is a bottle club, the focus is on the bottles and should be the main driver for anyone who is joining. We have chosen to also give our members presale access to our can releases as well, but remember this is only a perk. Being a member does not guarantee you cans. You or your proxy will have to be present on the presale can release days to obtain cans, there are no exceptions. We do not guarantee a certain number of releases, specific dates for the presales, or a specific allotment as that may all change with certain beers and as time progresses. Presale cans will be available at all five of our taproom locations.
FIRST RIGHT OF ACCEPTANCE FOR 2025 MEMBERSHIP:
2024 Cellar Cyndicate members will have pre-public access to 2025 Cellar Cyndicate memberships. The number of 2025 memberships available is yet to be determined, but all 2024 members will have the ability to re-apply.
NOTE: 2024 Cellar Cyndicate Select Members will have first rights to memberships, followed by Cellar Cyndicate Regular Members, and then the remaining memberships will be offered to the public.
Cellar Cyndicate-included and add-on merchandise will be available in early 2024 and all members will be notified when available.
The 2024 event calendar is not yet set, however, Cellar Cyndicate members will have pre-sale access to purchase tickets to ticketed events.
The 2024 Cellar Cyndicate membership will run through December 31st, 2024. All bottles and merchandise purchased and included with the membership may be stored at Pure Project until December 31st, 2024. Any bottles or merchandise not picked up by that date will be considered forfeited back to Pure Project.
TERMINATION OF MEMBERSHIP:
Pure Project has the right to terminate your membership at any time and refund the prorated amount of unclaimed bottles. Persons are allowed to have one membership. If you are found to have multiple memberships or are buying for resale, your membership will be terminated without a refund. We encourage you to drink, share with friends, and trade the beer you obtain through the membership, however reselling it is illegal and grounds for removal from the Cellar Cyndicate.
If you are a retailer, you are restricted from becoming a member.
