Yeah, it is torture. It seems like forever ago when I started this, and I still have at least 2 weeks to go.

I just joined. Minutes ago. I've never brewed but will be starting soon. Pray for me.

I'm a member, and have been for about 3 years now.  Joined up at the 2007 GABF, which included a great hat, too!  I use this board (though I've only discovered it recently, don't ask me how I missed it), Zymurgy, and the pub discount program. 

I do have one interesting observation about the pub discount program though (and it's with the pub, not the program).  I'm not going to name the pub, because that's not cool, but they've recently grown in popularity A LOT.  They were in the back of the LHBS, and very small when I first started brewing.  Everyone there was incredibly friendly, and the pub discount worked every time.  Well, fast forward a couple of years, and quite few awards to the brewery, and their popularity has skyrocketed.  They've moved into a much larger space, and they're constantly packed.  Now, the AHA pub discount only works on week nights, excluding Fridays. 

From a business perspective, I totally get what they're doing.  They've become very popular, and the exposure they received from offering the AHA discount is no longer needed as much.  That being said, it kind of feels like they're forgetting their roots, and the people that helped get them off the ground.

Sorry for the rant!  I still love all the benefits from the AHA!

The mail house that handles our member cards screwed up and resent member packs to a group that had already received packs.

I joined about a month ago and have not received my membership card yet. Is that strange?

In other news just bottled my first beer and it tastes great! Can't wait to start another batch, but haven't decided what to do yet. Plus can you buy non AHA members tickets to GABF  at the pre-sale?

I'm happy to be supporting AHA and look forward to the rallies, benefits, and more brewing.

Nope, takes about 6 weeks or so.

And don't forget they are all pretty busy right now with the conference.
