So...finally have these things going...hopefully I'm using them correctly
Metal Beer 3: The Mystery of Cvlt One
July 6, 2014
There have been allot of exciting new things happening in the world of Trve Brewing Co. of late. As their taproom has become my equivalent of the bar from “Cheers” (although I’m not quite to the point where everybody knows my name) it has been an added bonus to hear about the latest happenings when I drop in for a few pints. One of the recent updates was a change to membership plan known simply as the Cvlt (yes, it’s spelled with a “v”).
The Cvlt is one of the better membership efforts from local breweries and the recent changes reinforce that. Instead of simply getting a novelty growler or a few tasting events, the guys at Trve give you the choice of what works best for you. The first option, Ordo Vagabundus Cervisae, is the classic member program that Trve has had in place since its inception two years ago. You don’t just get a growler with this membership, you get six fills and discounts on everything that is sold in bottles at the Trve taproom. For the price, this is a great standard membership. I've chosen to go with the more recent option dubbed Ordo Utris Cerevisiae, or more easily referred to as the OUC.
The OUC is something that has me genuinely excited, the same way I once was for the prize at the bottom of a cereal box. With this membership, I am one of 333 lucky few that will receive two exclusive bottles at four points during the year. Some of these will be particularly enticing as they will be the result of the Acid Temple, Trve’s new expansion that is purposed with allowing their sour and wild ales to take a more prominenet role in Trve's lineup. I already have my first two bottles of Cvlt One, the first of the OUC exclusive beers; bottles that I have yet to open as I am not done reveling in their rarity or potential.
Is that an overly cheesy and sentimental attitude towards a few bottles of beer? Probably. But this is something that only a lucky few will get to experience so it is justified. I understand that there are still Cvlt memberships available at Trve, both the OVC and the OUC, and I would recommend that anyone who considers themselves a true beer nerd in Denver to pick one up before it’s too late.
