The Crafty Cabal is a subscriber benefit scheme by The Crafty Pint. It aims to connect beer lovers with Australian breweries and beer venues by curating deals, discounts and offers that are passed on to people who sign up and become Cabalistas.
As well as the ongoing deals, examples of which you can see on the landing page of this website, there will be one-off and short term offers, opportunities to snap up early bird or discount event tickets, amazing monthly prize draws – and we'll be throwing exclusive parties for Cabalistas around the country too.
In short, beer loving Crafty Pint readers sign up to access their own member's area containing the current offers, then head to participating venues to redeem them.
Think of it like a community radio subscriber scheme: you sign up to help The Crafty Pint get better and better; in return we give you access to hundreds of dollars of benefits each year.
Once you've signed up in the form on the landing page of the site, you'll be given your unique Cabalista number and gain access to your personal digital (leather bound) passport.
Within the passport, you'll see what offers are available (a minimum of five per state at any one time), a record of what you've been up to, and the latest news for Cabal members, including details of that month's prize draw.
Click on an offer and you'll be able to read about it in full and, once you're ready to redeem it, show it to staff at the venue / brewery who will look after you. Once it's been redeemed, that offer will no longer be available, unless it is one that is reusable.
You can redeem as many offers as you are able – all of them if you can.
We'll be adding new offers regularly throughout the year and notifying Cabalistas of one-off deals via an email newsletter. We'll also notify people of the latest offers via The Crafty Pint's social media channels.
On top of this, The Crafty Pint will throw parties for Cabalistas around the country at which we'll put on free kegs and, no doubt, line up some cool prizes and have some stars of the beer world along for a chat.
Nothing. Everything you currently enjoy about The Crafty Pint, either at craftypint.com or via the weekly newsletter, will remain 100 percent free.
If you sign up, you simply get sweet, sweet additional benefits while helping us expand so that we can bring you even more good beer news and play a greater role in encouraging the growth of craft beer in Australia.
