Mare Island Brewing Co.

Become a Yardbird

"Shipyards do not build ships, ships do not fight battles. It is the people who build ships, people who fight battles." -- anonymous Mare Island Yardbird (civilian shipyard worker).


Two releases per year (spring and fall). $125 per release. Each is a "mixed craft case” (12 bottles, mostly 22oz’rs). Yardbirds can pick up their shipment at the Pick-Up Parties, have it held for later pick up at the Ferry Taproom, or have it shipped (as a member, you'll receive 50% off shipping).

Rotating limited-availability seasonal brews including: Monomoy Märzen Lager, Nuclear Sandwich Double IPA, Six Buckets Russian Imperial Stout and more.

Additional Yardbird-only, reserve level tiny-batch brews crafted specifically for our beloved Yardbirds including: General Order No. 99 and Murphy the Pig Fresh Saison.

Each release, Yardbirds and their guests can purchase tickets to our rockin' Pick-Up Parties held at our Coal Shed Brewery on the waterfront of Mare Island. Parties include catered food, beer, live music, an intense and highly anticipated game (usually the highlight of the event, water balloon launchers have been involved), and of course, your release will be ready for pick up.

Multiple, fun, Yardbird-only events throughout the year: The Winter Feast, Yardbird Brewer's Bootcamp, 4th of July Fireworks viewing, SF Giants game, Historic Mare Island Brew Cruise, Crawfish Boil, and more. (See the calander below!)

Yardbirds (themselves only) tour and taste at our Coal Shed Brewery for free. Tours must be scheduled in advance.

Yardbirds receive 50% off shipping on all online orders, always (including club releases). Yardbirds also receive unique discounts and special access to various events throughout the year.
