People in Chicago have no excuse. The discount at brew & grow and the Goose brewpub pay for the membership REAL quick.
The Chicago area has quite a few pubs that are part of the Pub Discount Program: Goose Island, Rock Bottom, Gordon Biersch, Flossmoor Station, Haymarket, Luck Monk, Mickey Finn's, and even Granite City. Just bear in mind that Illinois' anti-Happy Hour law does not permit discounts on alcohol unless they are for everyone and for the entire day. That being said, I do know a few places on the above list that some how manage to apply the discount to the entire order.
Many of the Chicago area clubs have AHA Evangaleists that can offer slight discounts on memberships. If you attend one of the club meetings just ask one of the club officers. FYI, I am one for the Chicago Beer Society but have also signed people up who are members of other area clubs. PM me if you can't locate someone.
