Introducing Porch Bomb Club: An Exclusive Beer Trading Community
Every day on social media, we see people who have received a “porch bomb,” slang for a package with beers from another part of the country. Based on this, we realize that craft beer drinkers are always interested getting access to beers from other areas.
We’ve used HopCulture’s Beer Trading Group as inspiration and brought you the Porch Bomb Club.
Welcome to Season One
On the 1st of every month, members of the club will receive a matchup via email. Within fifteen days weeks of receiving these matchups, they will be expected to ship a box of beer, and should expect to receive one in return.
The idea is not to send your new friend beers that they could find in any King Soopers or 7-Eleven, but instead send them some awesome beer from your favorite local source. If you’re sending IPAs, please make sure they’ve not older than a few weeks, because that shizz is gross.
Signup starts August 15, and the first Assignments go out September 1.
WHY CHARGE AT ALL?
The impetus behind a paid club is that as the host, Focus on the Beer will have funds to create boxes for anyone who doesn’t get one — if you don't get a package, we will send you one, and the person who dropped the ball will not get another chance. Don’t be a bad beer trader—there are no refunds!
Also, for those joining the community, you'll receive a limited-edition Focus on the Beer merch box including a special-edition glass designed by Colorado Springs artist Phill Moore. Boxes will be sent out at a later unconfirmed date.
A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Colorado Springs Food Rescue, who works diligently in the Colorado Springs community to redistribute food that would ultimately go to waste. The food they “rescue”— ranging from loaves of bread to fresh produce—is loaded on a trailer, hitched to the back of a bike, and man-powered directly to places like community kitchens, low-income housing projects, and homeless shelters.
So join the community and trade some beers.
