Recently I joined the American Homebrewers Association, principally because I wanted the subscription to their magazine, “Zymurgy”. But, if you present your membership card at certain “homebrewer-friendly” establishments, you may receive a discount or even a free gift. Your local homebrew shop might give you a 5 or 10% discount on supplies.
Tonight we went to the Sierra Nevada Taproom for dinner. If you show your card, you can receive two tasting flights — one for you and one for your dining companion! Not sure if you’d really like Hoptimum or Double Dubble? Choose four of the most interesting beers to try and then get a pint of the one you like the best.
I think it’s cool that the “big guys” like Sierra Nevada do something nice for the “little guys”!
