Shipping Beer

WHERE CAN BEER BE SHIPPED?

Here is the list of states/territories beer can NOT be shipped to:

Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Hawaii, Kansas, Maine, Minnesota, Mississippi, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Dakota, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Wisconsin | American Samoa, Armed Forces, Federated States Of Micronesia, Guam, Marshall Islands, Northern Mariana Islands, Palau, Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands.

Oregon Folks: Please note we can only ship to business addresses in the state of Oregon. Please only provide a business address, not residential. Thanks!

Sadly, we can not ship outside of the country at this time.

WHY CAN'T MY BEER BE SHIPPED WITHIN WISCONSIN?!

 

Unfortunately, we cannot ship within the state of Wisconsin due to a law prohibiting the direct shipment of beer to customers in Wisconsin. This is an unfair law that restricts fair trade in our state. What is unfair about this is that wineries can obtain a permit to ship wine directly to consumers in our state, however, breweries cannot. As a proud brewery of our great beer state located in Brew City we find this to be an unjust and upsetting law. If you feel the same, we encourage you to contact your state representative! Here is a link to find your representative and their contact information. Tell them you are able to have wine from Wisconsin wineries shipped to your door, but beer you cannot.

It is very exciting to help in changing our state’s laws, and it is in fact quite easy. Representatives value your input, just as much as any communication we can send their way from our business. We thank you for being fans of MobCraft, and hope you can help us level the playing field in Wisconsin!

DO I HAVE TO SIGN FOR MY BEER?
Yes, any MobCraft beer you buy from an online liquor store will ship via FedEx or UPS with age verification. If you’re gone in the middle of the day, ship your beer to the office!

 

You will receive an email with shipping information when the beer ships out.

Madison Pickups

Placing a Madison Pickup Order
When you place a pre-order for Madison pickup. Please note that we are organizing popup beer gardens in the Madison area where people can pick up their beer on a monthly basis. We will keep everyone who places an order for Madison pickup posted on details as they become available. Our apologies for the inconvenience.

Voting/Placing a Pre-Order

HOW DO I VOTE FOR A BEER?
Vote by placing a pre-order for a beer while the voting round is running. When the round closes the beer with the most pre-orders wins and is brewed! The winning beer can be pre-ordered until it’s sold out.
HOW DO I ORDER A BEER?
Pre-order a beer while the voting round is running or after the voting round ends. The winning beers can be ordered until they have sold out.
CAN I ORDER MULTIPLE 4 PACKS?
Yes, you can! At this time, the only way is to cast your vote again by placing a pre-order.
WHAT HAPPENS IF MY BEER DOESN’T WIN?
There are a few options if the beer you voted for by pre-order doesn’t win.
1. We don’t charge your card until the vote is closed so if the beer you voted for does not win – you won’t be charged or receive beer.

2. You can select to transfer your purchase the beer that did win when placing your vote/pre-order. (Because even though it wasn’t your first choice, it’s still going to be delicious!)

3. Sometimes if a beer is a close second it can make an appearance in a future voting round!

The Process

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR ME TO GET MY BEER?
The voting period spans 3 weeks, from the first through the 21st at 11:59 PM CST of each month. Once the winner is named you can expect most of the beers we make to be brewed and packaged in 4-6 weeks.

We say “most” because some beers take longer that others, our higher ABV beers take an extra week, lagers and beers with secondary ingredient additions take about 6 weeks, and barrel aged beers can age from 6 months to a year! – It is all in the beers time so to say.

HOW DO I RECEIVE THE BEER I ORDERED?
The beer can either be picked up at our Milwaukee Taproom & Brewery or our Madison pickup location – The House of Brews located at 4539 Helgesen Drive, Madison, WI. You will receive detailed emails when the beer is ready to be picked up.

Out of State? When voting, you can choose to purchase through an online retailer that sells our beer and ships it to you.

IS THIS LEGAL?
Are you 21+ Years of Age? If so, Yes! As long as you live in one of the states that allows shipments of beer from a retailer to your door (see where we can ship FAQ) or pick up your beer at one of our pickup locations – we are good to go!
