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.
