Q: Why is Old Ox starting Order of the Ox?
A: We have had numerous requests from Old Ox fans to start a program such as this and we think it’s a great idea! We would like to work more closely with our loyal customers to get feedback on their Old Ox Experience in general and particularly the beers we brew. We are always looking for ways to enrich our customers’ experience!
Q: What is the cost to join Order of the Ox?
A: The annual fee for 2019 is $150.00 plus VA sales tax (6%). The membership year is January 2-December 31.
Q: When will I receive my mug, key and shirt?
A: All of the above merchandise and discounts will be available starting January 1, 2019.
Q: Are all beers eligible to be consumed in my Mug Club mug?
A: Our core and seasonal offerings and any beer served in a 16 oz. pint glass is eligible to be served in your 18 oz. Mug Club mug. Specialty beers will be served in the appropriate glass; however, you will receive your Mug Club discount on specialty beers.
Q: Do I have to drink beers out of my Mug Club mug?
A: No, but please note that the Mug Club mug is 18 oz. which is larger than our standard 16-oz. pint glass. If you would prefer to drink from the standard pub glass, you will receive the Mug Club discount but not the additional 2 oz. pour you would get with your Mug Club mug.
Q: When will the members-only beer be released?
A: We will be brewing member-only beers in the spring and in the fall. We will be taking input from our founding members to see what beers they would like us to brew.
Q: When is the first member meeting?
A: We’d like to welcome our founding members in February. This will give us a chance to get feedback for the special beer releases, answer questions about the Order of the Ox and hear your thoughts about the brewery. We will poll members to determine the exact date.
Q: Is membership limited?
A: Yes, we have limited the number of members to 100 individuals and each member is given a number. Numbers are assigned in the order the membership application/payment is received.
Q: Sign me up!
