These faded, worn-out membership cards will need to be replaced for 2017.

These faded, worn-out membership cards will need to be replaced for 2017.

Once again, the Crew worked to compile all the information for breweries that offer special memberships/mug clubs around the ABQ area and Santa Fe. Once again, it was not easy, as a lot of places either did not send us their information or did not have it available on their websites.

Ah, well.

We do know that Rowley Farmhouse Ales is not offering anything for 2017, but the rest are a mystery.

For those who did respond, or have it online, thank you. Your customers (including us) appreciate it. Here are all the ones we know of for 2017. We will update these listings if any additional info arrives in our email box (nmdarksidebrewcrew@gmail.com).
