Diving into Drunken Ape Social Club: The First IRL Distillery + Metaverse Bar

Good morning fellow degenerates! Hopefully your trading is going well as cryptocurrencies and NFTs continue to recover from this nasty bear market. As you may know, despite the recent pullbacks across the board, bullish news continues to pour in from every angle. NFTs are now being incorporated into EVERYTHING. Real estate, finance, P2E games, etc. and so on. We firmly believe this trend will continue until, inevitably, NFTs become the industry standard. When this occurs, the NFT will be the focal point around a business…basically any business. We are calling this the “NFT IRL phenomenon,” and it appears to be accelerating. For example, we discovered another interesting project today —  The Drunken Ape Social Club (DASC), a real world distillery incorporating the power of NFTs into their business model. Oh, and they have a metaverse bar! Hold your bullishness until the end, this is a unique project. Check out the details below.

What is Drunken Ape Social Club?

First off, a brief overview of the project. The team over at DASC combines vital elements in today’s NFT landscape with real world utilities. In this case, proportionate ownership of their real world distillery business. Sounds exciting, right? NFTs have truly come a long way.

So what is DASC at its core?

According to the website:

DASC is an exclusive club for Apes to come hang amongst FRENS, enjoy their favorite drink and unwind with all the ALPHA. 4888 Hand drawn unique, original Drunken apes chilling in the DASC. All different styles, drinks, colors, backgrounds, hats, shirts and other attributes sure to suit any unique drunken degen’s style.

​Got it, 4888 apes, and a mention of holding about 2-300 in reserve for marketing activities.

The mint is scheduled to launch on March 17, 2022, perfect timing for St. Patty’s Day!

Here is the kicker though. This is not a project to collect some token or play 2 earn game on the blockchain. The dev team has made it clear that the perks of minting/holding their NFTs is to essentially become a part owner in the distillery business. Yes, part business owner in a real life business that sells real life products (spirits).

Specifically, they discuss how this will be executed logistically :

We will deliver 50% of all profits from the distilling of our spirits and merch sales (25% directly to hodlers wallets, 25% to the community wallet – eventually to be controlled by the DAO) back to our true believers, VIA’s and hodlers. We will also be giving away 1/1 airdrops to some lucky holders after the mint. Also we will be holding weekly giveaways in our discord of NFT’s, bottles, merch and other great items so don’t forget to be active in there!

Who would have thought? Becoming a part owner of a distillery business via NFT…

Bullish!

NFT Rarity

DASC has prereleased the rarity categories of their NFTs. There will be four primary categories (in order or rarity): Sober Ape, Tipsy Ape, Surly Ape, Plastered Ape and Blackout Ape.

For the most part, you don’t see much of this type of art. These Apes are caught in the act of having a drink, not just centered PFPs like most of the other collections.

Sober Ape (Common):

The Sober Ape is the most common in the wild. They are typically a serious Ape, responsible and reliable, a social drinker.

Tipsy Ape (Uncommon):

The Tipsy Ape is uncommon, but still seen regularly. They are typically a fun Ape, always making jokes with a zest for life, minting projects with you so you can check floor price together. The kind of Ape you go with on vacation, to a party or a club.

Surly Ape (Illusive):

The Surly Ape is illusive, as they are all over the place they can be quite hard to see. They are a risky Ape to be with, a wildcard, as you never know what will happen next. The kind of Ape that you have your very best stories with, but also some of your worst.

Plastered Ape (Rare):

The Plastered Ape is quite rare, as very few can go the distance. They are a dangerous Ape to be around as serious trouble always follows them. The kind of Ape that people whisper about, always starting with “you won’t believe what they did now”.

Blackout Ape (1/1)

With 1 in the universe, the Black Out Ape is as rare as they get, no other Ape can do what this one does. They have no self-control, no boundaries and no limit. They’ve been known to go all in on meme coins, sell below the floor and then beg the community for help. This is an Ape that is on a first name basis with the police.

We will update with more artwork when the mint is complete!

First Metaverse Bar

Next up, something very unique that we have not seen anyone do thus far…the first metaverse bar!

Yes, you heard it here first. DASC project claims to have an exclusive bar in the metaverse, where holders will be able to gather for the most social activity of all, drinking!

Who doesn’t like to have a good time with frens in the metaverse? Most likely, the metaverse is where a lot of social activity will take place, so we are constantly on the look out for projects like DASC as this becomes more common.

Check out the exclusive concept photos we received from the creators:

A lounge feel, for the fancy people.

This one has more of an open event vibe, equally as bullish.

Cannot wait to see this once the DASC metaverse is finished!

Final Thoughts

Conclusively, this project feels pretty avant-garde. It is always the contrarians that ride trends that establish a name for themselves. In this case, a distillery business that shares profits with the community and builds the community through the business. A very interesting concept, and we will definitely be following the project as it develops. To put it all together, you have unique NFT art, a real life business model that will pay holders from profits not NFT royalties, community events and a metaverse bar. Seems fun to us! Highly recommend reading the official roadmap to see all the bells and whistles, as well as a thorough analysis of the project. We will be updating on this after the mint is complete to check the status, so make sure you are subscribed.
