Why become a member?

A Patron member joins the co-op because they want to support the brewpub by drinking and eating there. Patron members receive a dividend based on the amount of money spent at the co-op. The dividend comes in the form of credit to be used in the future at the co-op. 

In other words, if you eat and drink a lot at Foremost, you will get a lot of credit for free beer and food the following year. If you eat and drink only a little, you will only get a little bit of credit for the following year.

In addition to a dividend based on purchases, Patron members also receive:

  • One vote in the affairs of the cooperative (Household membership = 1 Vote)

  • Free pint during the month of their birthday  (Household membership = 2 Birthdays)

  • Free pint during the month of their membership anniversary. (Household membership = 2 Pints)

The membership holds the following powers: 

  1. Election and removal of directors 

  2. Passage of advisory resolution for consideration by the Board 

  3. And all other rights given to them in the bylaws 

What does a membership cost?

The investment level for patron members is $200 for an individual membership and $300 for a joint membership (two people of the same household). 

The patron membership investment is a one-time fee!
