MacLeod Ale

Mostly British Ale brewed fresh in Van Nuys

Sometimes when I reflect on all the beer I drink, I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about all the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn’t drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. I think, ‘It is better to drink this beer and let their dreams come true than to be selfish and worry about my liver!’
— Babe Ruth

Do you love MacLeod Ale? Would you like to become a member of a very exclusive club, a club that includes HAPPY HOUR PRICES ALL YEAR LONG? Well, then you've come to the right place! Welcome to the PUNTERS CLUB!

WHAT IS THE punters club?

The Punters Club is a mug club that entitles you to Happy Hour prices EVERY DAY, FOR EVERY PINT! Your Punters Club membership comes with a traditional "Pint Pot" for you to bring to the brewery to be filled with 20 oz (an Imperial Pint) of any of our beers, for ONLY $5, for one calendar year (January 1 - December 31)!

what is included in my membership?

Membership into the Punters Club includes the official 2017 Punters Club Pint Pot, a special Punters Club tee, a Punters hat, MacLeod coffee mug, and growler coozie! The swag alone is worth over $65! You can also purchase a PREMIUM membership which comes with a $50 gift card for only $40! [$100 for $80 with the Double Punter membership].

Additionally, this year we will be brewing a special beer JUST FOR YOU! This will be a premium, one-time-only special edition beer that will be available on tap and in special bottles, and only Punters can have it!

punters club math

It's like getting every third pint for a buck! Here's how much you can save:

Punter pints are only $5, for a savings of $2 per pint [$3 savings for premium $8 beers]. So it's pretty simple, really; if you come in once a week and have 3 pints, you'll save $6. Do that all year and you'll save $312, much more than the cost of membership! And remember, you're getting all that cool swag, PLUS a one-time, premium, world-class beer brewed JUST FOR YOU to enjoy in the tasting room and purchase bottles to take home.

If you REALLY love it here, and come 3 times a week, you could be looking at a savings of at least $936! Yes, beer lover, you spend a lot of money on beer! 

Any way you do the math, the Punters Club is offering you a HUGE savings! 

MEMBERSHIP IS LIMITED!

The Punters Club is limited to only 125 people. Membership must be renewed on a yearly basis and current Punters Club members will get first chance to renew. After the renewal period, we will open up memberships for however many slots remain.

That's why it's a great idea to get in on a Punters Club membership early - you are setting yourself up to have first priority in all the years to come!

Punters Club FAQ

What if I forget my Pint Pot at home?

Don't worry, we will have a list of all current Punters Club Members behind the bar and will have some extra Pint Pots on hand for you to borrow should you need.

Do I have to drink my pints out of my Pint Pot?

Not at all! You can drink your unlimited pints out of a red solo cup if you'd like! Simply tell your friendly bartender you prefer your beer in our standard pint glass or whatever vessel you fancy!

Do I get a full 20 oz. of the Premium (high ABV) beers in my Pint Pot?

Unfortunately no; for the special Premium releases we have in our taproom (those with high ABV's), we will serve those to you in the appropriate glassware, normally 11oz stemware. But you will still get the beer for your special Punter price of $5.

Does membership in the Punters Club expire?

Yes, membership is for one year only, January-December. Each year will feature a different Punters Club Pint Pot and each year the master member list will be revised. You can only receive unlimited beer in the current year's Pint Pot. If you choose not to renew, you will no longer receive Punters Club member benefits.

When does my membership in the Punters Club start?

Punters Club membership will be for one calendar year, beginning January 1, and ending December 31. Punters Club Pint Pots will be available for collection in the taproom beginning December 1, 2016, and you can begin using on January 1, 2017!

What about Tips?

Tips are not included with your Punters Club membership. Please support our bartenders with the customary $1 or $2 per beer. The tip goes directly to your bartender and not to MacLeod Ale.

Can I share my unlimited beers with my friends?

We love that you want to bring your friends into MacLeod Ale, but the Punters Club pricing is only for the specific Punters Club member. Please, no sharing of mugs.

Can I buy a Punters Club Membership as a gift?

Absolutely! There is a field to designate the member's name when you purchase a membership in our Shop.
