CT Beer Trail

    How do we get more Brew Pubs,Bars and Restaurants in CT involved with the AHA and the pub program they offer with membership? 

Only 3 places in Connecticut participate they can be found here www.homebrewersassociation.org.  That's 3 out of how many in CT?

I see many pubs becoming members here on CTBEERTRAIL.NET that are not members of the AHA Pub Program and my question to you is simple ....WHY?

 

As a home-brewer/Craft Beer Lover when I go out on the town beer factors in on my decision for where to go. Homebrewing has and always will play a major role in the craft brew industry and many club meetings take place at pubs that are not involved.  If you frequent a brew pub ask them to participate and let us know what they say maybe they don't know about it?

 

 A new place called MiKro  in Hamden  I never knew was there but now I will make a point to stop in for a pint or two.

 

Just a sober thought I had :)...( it happens now and then)

John, it could be as simple as managers/employees not being aware of the AHA or its pub program. I'm a member myself and have also noticed a lack of participation with this program. Maybe it's something that could be spread word of mouth.

Jim,

 

I agree.

There are many pubs not aware of how it works or that it exists at all. Just  click the link click here for more info.  It would be nice for some of the pub owners to ring in on their thoughts here. There must be a reason participation is so low in CT.

MiKro is my fab beer bar!  Love Willibrew and Eli Cannons, too. But, MiKro has legit gourmet food to go with some great beers.  Check it out!
Just wanted to throw out a correction. Mikro in Hamden offers %10 off your entire check with your AHA Card, not just $1 off. Our $1 off special is our Happy Hour for everyone.
I will post the details at the store, where we will be selling AHA memberships soon.

If you stop in your favorite local place, ask them to join the Trail Blazers Club! http://ctbeertrail.net/page/ct-beer-trail-s-trail-blazers-club
