Cleophus Quealy's Membership Club

What is The menagerie of distinguished drinkers?

The Menagerie of Distinguished Drinkers is our exclusive cadre of tipplers, united in the pursuit of good beer, superb company, and exceptional experiences. This social club is free to join, and comes with access to inside info about tasting room happenings, access to special brews, and perks that build the more you check in at the tasting room.


This is the first step in your adventure! Sign up in our tasting room or online to receive exclusive member updates, an invite to our members-only initiation rites during SF Beer Week, plus access to secret Menagerie brews in the tasting room and special Menagerie member merch.


After ten check-ins (or purchase of a Menagerie swag pack), members will advance to the Society of the Hogshead. This means all the inside updates that come with Fellowship of the Firkin, plus a 10% discount on online orders, and an invite to our members-only Halloween soiree.


Thirty check-ins means graduation to The Order of the Puncheon. Members will enjoy 10% off all tasting room purchases (and online orders), plus access to the Menagerie Cellar, a curated collection of past bottle releases, and invites to super exclusive beer dinners and intimate events.


Complete the Cervezanomicon and join the illustrious ranks of the Fraternity of the Foeder. We challenge you, dear Distinguished Drinker, to seek out unique flavor combinations and try our most experimental brews. Those who complete this Herculean tasting task will receive accolades, adoration, and perks like invitations to help us taste barrels and blend beers. Ask your beerista about how to begin!



Menagerie Tap

All members are welcome to order the secret beer on the Menagerie tap in the tasting room. This may be a super small batch of something special, a preview of an upcoming brew, or something we’ve been saving for a special occasion. Ask your beerista about what we currently have on tap!

Menagerie Events

We’ll throw a grand Menagerie Initiation during SF Beer Week on Wednesday, February 6th. All members plus guests are welcome! We’ll also invite members to exclusive events and meet-ups throughout the year. In addition, Menagerie members will receive VIP perks at events held in the tasting room throughout the year, such as early admission or special beers.


Apparel, Glassware, and Growlers

What good is a membership without some amazing swag? We’ll offer Menagerie-exclusive merch, including glasses, growlers, t-shirts, and more. Purchasing a Menagerie gift package (either for yourself or a loved one) will mean let you jump ahead to the SOCIETY OF THE HOGSHEAD rank, and earn the perks that come along with it.


The Menagerie of Distinguished Drinkers members will also be subscribed to our newsletter and privy to insider info on bottle releases, event information, and general information about Cleophus Quealy.
