Craft Brewers Form Connecticut Beer Guild
HARTFORD COURANT: Beer drinkers seeking a
locally made brew will get help from a new
organization of state entrepreneurs: the Connecticut
Brewers Guild. Typically small and independently
owned, craft brewers are a fast growing segment of
the beer industry.
"We have seen an exponential increase in traffic to
our brewery over the last year for our open house
gatherings, tours and tastings, and private events,"
said Curt Cameron, president of The Thomas Hooker
Brewery in Bloomfield. "This is a testament to the
growing interest in locally created products and the
fantastic stories that go with each of them."
The new non-profit organization will try to attract
tourists, promote beer festivals and generally
increase interest in local brews.
