Default Starting a Mug Club

A friend of mine came up with the idea to start a mug club for my home bar, so I recently put this together, I was wondering if anyone else did this typew of thing ?

Here's the rub:

1.I invited 24 close friends ( all guy's except for 3 hot girls ) ,
2.Everyone gets their own mug with a number on it
3.Everyone gets a cool custom tee shirt
4. unlimited beer for a year
5. learn how to brew for the ones who have never done it before or a couple of guests
6. A quarterly newsletter , upcoming parties, latest breers on tap , sugguestions ...etc
7. Cost is $ 120 per year / 10 bucks a month

Here's how it breaks down

24 x 120 = $ 2880
less 445 mug cost
less 425 tee shirts

roughly $ 2,000 dollars ingredients, that allot of grain and hops .

How it happened ? , people were drinking and wanting to always give me 5 or 10 bucks here or there, for them , it works out to 10 bucks a month ( which is just like two beers at a bar a month ) . Of course my time and utility cost are in there too. but this just makes it all easier I guess.

Here's the cool part :

Pretty sweet idea. Got to love 2k for ingredients/equipment. Once you get them all brewing you can have your own little festival, too

Yep great idea to sell them a t-shirt, fancy mug, and tuition for a class for $120.
What they put in the mug is up to them

The only thing I would have done different is to allow everybody to bring their own mug. The ones you have are pretty damn cool, but drinking out of a skull is badass

+1 on that. The best mug clubs are the ones where you supply the mug. And drinking out of a skull is pretty badass

I was in a mug club at my favorite pub (before I moved away), and they supplied the mug... BUT I put some skull stickers on it to customize it (and to feel more badass, like Parker36 with his skull mug).

The only thing that would make it better is to up the ratio of hot girls and post pictures on HBT.

Seriously though, great idea and it's cool that you have the support of friends to run something like that.

Here's how it breaks down... I drink you broke... you enjoy my meager $120 donation. Any questions?
