What Is Club AF?
Club AF is a pre-paid, quarterly mead club that gets members a box of five (5) meads once per period, as well as early access to some releases (specifically barrel releases for 2019), all at well below retail price. Shipping is also included, and meadery pickup will always be available. Membership is $80 per quarter and is pre-paid. Once you are signed up you are authorizing us to charge for the membership each quarter until you notify that you wish to cancel.
