Welcome New Readers!

As we announced on Friday, Hoperatives is now part of the Cincinnati.com Blog Network and we’re already starting to see some new readers thanks to that affiliation. If you’re new to Hoperatives, let us give you the nickel tour.

On Mondays (like today), we publish “This Week in Beer” and on Fridays, we publish the “Growlers and Tastings Report”. Most 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 regular contributors John Lavelle, Jared Whalen and Jason Rust aka Puddin’.

You can also find Hoperatives on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/hoperatives and on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/hoperatives. If you use Google calendar, you can add our Hoperatives Cincinnati beer events calendar just by clicking here and then click the button in the bottom right corner to add it to your Google calendar.

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 drop an email message to rollcall@hoperatives.com with your name and location to join our ranks and get your roll call number. You can see the 302 already registered Hoperatives on our 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 and raise a pint of better beer in your honor!

Cheers and here’s to better beer!
