You would think that by now they would have run out of ideas, but Community Beer Works has found yet another way to exemplify the community aspect of their name, this time with the launch of a new rewards program. You will earn points for every dollar you spend, whether it be at the brewery’s taproom upon reopening or at any one of their many pop-up events around town.

Perhaps the best aspect of CBW’s rewards program is its simplicity. After signing up online, you’ll earn one point for every dollar you spend. That’s really about it. There’s no card to carry to app to download, and you only need a few seconds of your time to sign-up.

For every $1 spent, you’ll earn 1 point. Each point is redeemable for a $0.10 value off of your bill. You can also score a 5 point bonus just for signing up and a $5 bonus on your birthday. Points cannot be redeemed until you meet or exceed 50 points.

And you don’t even have to keep track of your balance – CBW does it for you. All you have to do is click the ‘Check My Balance’ button on their rewards website and an email will be sent to you with your balance. It literally takes two seconds and from the email they sent, you can check your rewards bslance and transaction history.

This is an easy way to stretch your dollars further, and if you’re anything like me, you are spending a lot of those dollars on beer right now.
