Why would you pay for this? They haven’t made a single beer. I’ll wait and see if they can make a desent beer.
I have a feeling this place is more show then go. They keep saying that they are going to open but then nothing. I think these guys like to talk a big game. What value do you really get for the money? No thanks I’ll pass.
It works for some established breweries such as cigar city, bruery, and spring house. But it’s a complete joke for an unopened brewery that’s only offers a basic porter/IPA/saison to have a club like this. Honestly looks to be a grab money while you can scam. I hope those who dropped the cash on an unproven start up get some worth out of it.
We understand the apprehension from people that dont know us, we would be too.
We have worked on opening Spellbound from a concept started at our first meeting on June 1, 2011. We invested our lives into this business and are glad we have 141 people so far that know how passionate we are about this and joined the club. They also took the time to ask us about who we are and what to expect (ie barrel program) once we start brewing (sept).
Starting a production brewery is nothing short of a monumental task. We are happy to share our experiences with anyone looking to open a brewery in NJ. We were helped along the way more times than we can count. Just send us an email or send a message through facebook.
If anyone that has joined is persuaded to leave the club due to the insightful comments above, we are happy to refund you.
Otherwise we have 9 spots left. 😉
Thanks NJCB for the continued info about the craft brew scene in NJ!

Come on suckers! We only need 9 more. Good luck with that.
