A Quick Tour of Hoperatives (a bi-monthly post)

Since we’ve picked up some new readers, we thought it was time to run this quick tour of Hoperatives again. Step this way please…

On Mondays, we publish “This Week in Beer” and on Fridays, we publish the “Growlers and Tastings Report”. Many Tuesdays, we have our “Traveling Tuesday” post on a better beer location outside the greater Cincinnati area. The other days are filled with local Cincinnati beer news, beer reviews and posts from our writers.

You can also find Hoperatives on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/hoperatives, on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/hoperatives and on Pinterest at http://pinterest.com/hoperatives/.

Looking for books on brewing history in Cincinnati and beyond or possibly beer accessories? Check out our new Bookstore and Beer Wares links in the left hand column. Let us know if there’s a book or item we are missing.

If you are a believer in better beer (in Cincinnati and beyond) and you’ll like to make that official, you should be a Hoperative. All you have to do is fill out the form to join our ranks and get your roll call number. You can see the already registered Hoperatives on that same Roll Call page.

The best way Hoperatives grows is through the input of our readers. We love hearing your suggestions. Watch for a survey soon on how you had give us even more input!

So welcome! We welcome you (or welcome you back) and raise a pint of better beer in your honor!

Cheers and here’s to better beer!

– Carla and Tom
