This looks like a lot of reading material below ... do you have a TL;DR?
The information below is detailed since it needs to be, but in the simplest of terms: If you win our lottery, you will get to schedule a pickup window to come to our production facility and buy your bottle(s). Currently, no proxies for pickup/winners. For this release, we will NOT be able to facilitate taps during the pickup windows.
Winners will have the option to purchase one 4-pack. Winners Notified in waves between 3/1 and 3/4.
Winners will have a choice between two locations for pickup:
Aman’s Beer + Wine: Wind Lake WI (Inside Pickup)
Between 3/8 and 3/27, Tuesday-Thur 3pm-9pm (taps available) and Sat/Sun 8am-noon (no taps).
Pips Meadery (Curbside Pickup):
3/8, 3/9, 3/10, 3/12, 3/13, 3/14, 3/15, 3/18, 3/19, 3/20, 3/21, 3/24, 3/25, 3/26 and 3/27.
Available weekdays: 10am-3pm
Available Saturdays: Noon-7pm

How does the lottery work?
Our lottery entry period will be open for several days once it goes live. You may enter one time during the window, and duplicate entries will be removed. You will be required to enter your drivers license on the entry form, as we will be checking your drivers license upon pickup (if you’re a winner). Once the lottery entry window is over, an email will go out to all of the winners within 24 hours.
What happens if we get a winning email?
If you are a winner, your winning email will have a link that will take you to an online reservation system. From here, you will be able to choose from multiple blocks of times across the pickup window dates to schedule a time for pickup at our production site at:
39452 N Lewis Ave, Beach Park, IL. There will only be a very small number of openings available at each interval as we want to keep traffic down and allow for greater interaction with us during your trip in, as well as provide an opportunity to try a few things on tap should you wish.
The links in your email are unique to you, and once it is used, it is gone. You can try to share a winning email if you want to, but it won’t result in anything beyond an error message.
If I win, can I bring someone...even if they didn't win?
If we’re offering tap pours for a specific release, of course. We want you to have a good time when you come to pick up your bottles still, so feel free to bring a +1 with you…we just don’t want to have a winner bring a group of 10 people as our space is quite small and seating will be limited.
