Q: Why is Old Ox starting Order of the Ox in Middleburg?
A: Our Order of the Ox Ashburn Chapter was such a huge success that we would like to create the same experience for our customers in Middleburg. This will allow us to work closely with our Middleburg customers to get their feedback on the Old Ox experimental beers we will be releasing in October, our menus and events. 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 2020 is $150 plus VA sales tax (6%). The membership year is January 1-December 31. However, to establish Order of the Ox Middleburg, we are offering a 17-month membership for $200. This membership runs from August 1, 2019 to December 31, 2020.
Q: What will I get with my membership?
A: You can immediately start receiving a 15% discount on all your Old Ox purchases.
Q: When will I receive my mug, key and shirt?
A: Key chains and shirts and a special Order of the Ox 20-oz. Mug with your membership number engraved on the bottom will be available mid-September.
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 20 oz. Mug Club mug. Specialty beers will be served in the appropriate glass; however, you will receive your Mug Club discount.
Q: Do I have to drink beers out of my Mug Club mug?
A: No, but please note that the Mug Club mug is 20 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 4 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 October. 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.
