BERKELEY — Two Parts launches the Denver Mug Club, a monthly subscription service, on April 1 at Call to Arms Brewing Company. The traditional mug club is turned on its head now through the promotion of Denver's burgeoning craft beer scene. A dresser-sized beer shrine will be held at a selected brewery each month filled with numbered stoneware mugs. Limited to 100 members, each member will receive a corresponding number and mug for a monthly $10 subscription fee. Members can use their mug for a free first fill, discounts on fills beyond the first, and access to one special Mug Club meetup at each stop. Meetups additionally feature special tappings, private tours, and discounts. To join the Denver Mug Club and view the club schedule, visit their website.
