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 (spring and fall) release/shipments per year. Each one is a mixed “craft case” (12 bottles, mostly 22oz’rs) of our seasonal, and specialty brews. $125 per release/shipment. Yardbirds can pick up their shipment at the Yardbird Pick-Up Parties; or receive a 50% shipping credit; or we can hold your shipment for later pickup at the taproom.
• “Murphy the Pig” Fresh Saison (the highlight of the spring shipment)
• "General Order No. 99" barrel/bunker-aged reserve porter (the cornerstone of the fall shipment).
• Rotating limited-availability seasonal brews including “Nuclear Sandwich” Double IPA, “Six Red Buckets” Russian Imperial Stout, and "Survivor’s Tale" Pale Ale.
•Additional, limited-edition tiny-batch brews crafted specifically for our beloved Yardbirds.
We’ll email you a few weeks before each release to notify you of your upcoming shipment. Then purchase your tickets and come to our exclusive Pick-Up Parties for Yardbirds and their guests at our waterfront Coal Shed Brewery to claim your shipment; parties include live music, catered artisan food, and the (in)famous Yardbird game (water balloon launchers have been involved).
Join us throughout the year for a series of Yardbird gatherings: "The Winter Feast", Yardbird Brewer's Bootcamp, SF Giants game, the Historic Mare Island Brew Cruise, and more.
Yardbirds always receive a 50% discount on shipping and enjoy other exclusive discounts, offers, and first/special access to Taproom/Brewery events and products throughout the year.
