Show the World You’re a Hoperative!

I Believe in Better Beer

A frequent question we get when we wear our Hoperatives apparel to local beer events is whether the items are available for registered Hoperatives to purchase. Well, they are! In fact, you can choose between silk screened or embroidered clothing.

Cafe Press

We recently added a series of “I Believe in Better Beer” items to the Hoperatives Store on Cafe Press. Where the product design allows, it has the graphic you see in the image on the front with our motto “Believers in Better Beer (in Cincinnati and Beyond)” on the back. Not only will it reflect your good taste in both beer and fashion, it’ll help defray some of the costs of running Hoperatives.com (web hosting isn’t cheap). If you’re familiar with Cafe Press, you know they have a jillion things they can put custom logos on. We’ve picked a collection we think shows our stuff off best, but if there’s an item you ‘d like to see that we haven’t chosen, let us know!

Clothing and more from Cafe Press features a silk screened Hoperatives logo and sometimes our tag line or the “I Believe in Better Beer” logo mentioned above. There are many types of t-shirts, tank tops, hoodies and caps. Non-clothing items include tote bag, mugs, steins, mouse pads, journals, aprons and buttons.

http://www.cafepress.com/hoperatives

Lands End

Clothing from Lands End features an embroidered Hoperatives logo (usually on the left side of the chest of the item). Items for women include cardigans, polo shirts (both short sleeve and long sleeve), t-shirts (with two different neck types), broadcloth blouses (both short sleeve and long sleeve) and fleece jackets. Items for men include polo shirts (both short sleeve and long sleeve), t-shirts (with and without a pocket), twill shirts (both short sleeve and long sleeve) and fleece jackets.

Don’t see something you were hoping for? Let us know and we’ll see what we can do!

Cheers and here’s to better beer!

Party Source Announces New Beer Club

Just opened the latest BeerMail from the Party Source and Ei8ht Ball to find this very interesting bit of news:

Welcome to The Party Source Beer Club, an opportunity to taste better beer and explore the world of craft and artisanal brews from around the globe. Access to this club is open to everyone, but membership has its privileges. As a member you’ll receive a personalized selection of beer based on your preferred styles. Each beer is hand chosen by our craft beer connoisseurs, and will be chosen based on a simple survey filled out by you telling to us what your palate pleases.

But that’s not all; check out these incentives for being part of our beer club:

SKIP THE LINE – Advanced notice and first access to special releases, one-off, limited production and specialty beer releases. This includes, but is not limited to, Founders KBS, Goose Island Bourbon County Stout, Bell’s Hopslam, Cantillon etc.

VIP TASTINGS & FOOD EVENTS – As a thank you for your participation, several times a year we will hold tastings as well as beer and food events set up just for TPS Beer Club members.

WHATS ON TAP – Personal emails letting you know when we tap something at Ei8ht Ball that based upon your preferences we think you will dig.

GLASSWARE – Every three months as a bonus incentive, we will include in your selection box one of the hottest beer glasses (pint, snifter, chalice etc..) free of charge.

SWAG – Maybe it’s a T-shirt, hat, keychain, beer opener or a beer related food item, whatever it is will also make its way into your container of craft every three months.

COST – $90 for three months, $150 for six months and $250 for twelve months.

This is like no-other beer club offered. You are in total control. Unlike other “Beer Clubs” where the same selection is sent to everyone, we pick and choose your brews based on the beer style you like. We can’t wait to get started with this program next week.

PLEASE NOTE: The Party Source does not ship alcohol products. Beer Club selections must be picked up in-store.

Stout Season, Sound Off!

As you may have noticed, the air is becoming crisp, the days shorter and Christmas decorations are popping up around town.  That can only mean one thing; fall has arrived in Greater Cincinnati.  And though it troubles me that it has become normal around here for Christmas to arrive ten minutes after Halloween (we will save that for another post), one of my favorite things about this time of year is that fall is also stout season.  Everyone has their favorite beers and beer styles and for me, the higher the SRM1 the happier I am.

Chris and Jared enjoying a Stout at Holler

I can’t really articulate what it is about stouts that make me so happy.  Maybe the roastiness, or the dark chocolates.  Maybe it’s how the full body makes you feel like you are really drinking a beer.  Maybe, and this is a stretch, just maybe it is the often-elevated alcohol content.  Whatever it is, I love a good stout. Since we are getting into the season of the stout, I thought it would be fun to find out what your favorite Greater Cincinnati brewed stout is.

So let’s hear it!  What is your favorite stout?  Start with your favorite that is brewed locally.  I would also like to know what your all time favorite is if it doesn’t happen to be from around here.  And I know Porters are really good too, they are my second favorite style (see previous SRM comment), but I am looking for stouts right now.

Let me know in the comments here, on Facebook or Twitter @cmcgnky what your favorite Cincinnati area stout is and where I can find it.  Then let me know about your all-time favorite even if it is from out of town.   I will be making my stout shopping list and will follow up with another post on all of the great hometown stouts out there, hopefully just in time for you to start your Christmas shopping.

Send Us Your Beer Information… PLEASE! (A Bi-monthly Post)

Almost weekly, as soon as either our This Week in Beer or Tastings and Growlers posts go up, we get a comment about some event we didn’t know about. And it makes us sad 1. Hoperatives was created to let people know about the better beer locations and better beer events happening in Cincinnati. But we can’t let people know if we don’t know ourselves.

So it would be a lot easier being psychic. Then we’d know what’s going on. The problem is that we’d also have to know a lot of stuff we’d rather not know, like why people drink Bud Select 55. Given the choice, we’ll pass on being psychic. Besides, the collective power of the Internet is better.

Here’s what you can do to help:

  1. both@hoperatives.com is the best way to reach us.
  2. If your favorite better beer location is not in one of our listings in the left hand column, let us know. Optimally, we would love to have the location’s name, address, phone number, web site and hours if possible. But, we’d be happy with just a name to start with. We have Google and we’re not afraid to use it.
  3. If your favorite better beer restaurant or bar has a rotating tap list, send us an update when you get a chance. This is an area we really hope to expand in the future. If you like, you can even just snap a picture of it with your cell phone and email it to us (though text is preferred).
  4. If your favorite better beer location is having an event, drop us a line and let us know. Don’t assume we already know about it. You would be amazed how many events we stumble upon on FaceBook or by surfing websites.
  5. We don’t do formal reviews of anything other than beer, but we’re perfectly happy to talk about the people and places that serve better beer. Maybe you were someplace and a bartender or other server told you about something new. Or you have a place you just love and want the world to know about. Send us an e-mail! There are over 400 Hoperatives listed on the Roll Call page and more in the pipeline waiting to be processed. We’d love to hear from all of you.

It’s been said often in this space, but it’s true: Cincinnati’s not that big, but we’d hate to have to paint it. Let us know what’s happening and we’ll make sure to get the word out.

Thanks!

Carla and Tom


1Don’t get us wrong, we’re happy to get the comment. We’ll usually update the post as a result. But it just would have been nice to have the information before we posted the first time.
