CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture, we took the basic model of a farm CSA and applied it to the way we offer and distribute exciting new craft beer styles to our members.
Typically, members pay up front for a portion (share) of the harvested produce, eggs, meat, etc. Risk and reward is shared equally among members and growers. Benefits include high-quality fresh food and a direct relationship with the producer and product.
We incorporated the CSA concept to our beer production and distribution in order to provide true craft beer enthusiasts an opportunity to experience unique, limited-release beers in a wide range of styles. The breadth of styles can range from Imperial Stouts, to a variety of Pale Ales, or Saison styles that feature seasonal produce. The CSA is a great way to be involved with the community and have a close, working relationship with the brewery and other craft beer aficionados.
Shares are sold in 6-month increments: January - June and July - December. The risk factor of a traditional CSA is eliminated since members know up front what the offerings will be and how much they will be getting. The program also keeps costs down to less than $7 per bomber for premium craft beers that often would be sold at a retail cost of as much as $20 per bomber.
A full share includes 12 bombers each month; a half share includes 6 bombers each month. Members receive updates about the beer and notifications as to when to pick up their share at the brewery on the farm, or down at Craft Beer Cellar in Old Town, Fort Collins.
