SUPPORT SMALL BUSINESS



Beer Buddy Members, 

Thank you SO MUCH for being a part of Boise Beer Buddies!
Boise Beer Buddies relies on small businesses and events to operate. In light of the current crisis, many of these small businesses are temporarily closing their doors and most events have been cancelled. 

Now I am counting on you, Beer Buddy Members, more than ever to help me get through this uncertain time. 

Please consider purchasing or renewing your membership. All One-Year Memberships purchased through the end of April 2020 will be valid through July 2021. VIP Memberships are valid for life. Use Coupon Code BUDDIES to save 20%. Added bonus: the first 20 orders will receive the cool sticker shown in the photo! 


Already have a current membership? Renew now and get three months added on your new card. For example, if your card expires in September 2020, renew now and your new card will be valid through December 2021. Use Coupon Code BUDDIES to save 20%. You will also receive a cool sticker, while supplies last! Offer valid through the end of April 2020.


Other options to help: send an eGift card to a fellow craft beer fan so they can join the club. Use Coupon Code BUDDIES to save 20%. 


And finally, if you just want to help, please consider a donation through Venmo or at the Contribution tab.

Thank you for your continued support, especially during this challenging time. I will make it through this, but I couldn't do it without you!

Most of all - stay well and be safe!
