Founders Night at JAKs Brewing
From their original email:
Are you ready for your own night? We have decided to show you our loyalty as you have so graciously shown us. The last Wednesday of every month will be our Founder’s Mug Club Wednesdays!! This night will be solely for the mug club members and we will provide some munchies for everyone to snack on. This is a great time to get to know one another and share some war stories over a 20 Ounce Brew. This will also be a time for you to sample or newest beers before it hits the general public! Our first night is 29 July from 5-9ish! Thank you all for your loyalty and lets get AGGRESSIVE!
