I am new to the forum and newly joined the AHA. It's already nice to have access to zymurgy and when I get my member card I can take advantage of a few discounts (although GA doesn't really have a whole lot of participation). I'm kind of jealous that most of the rallies and discounts are out west, but maybe some cool stuff will eventually come eastbound.How can I "persuade" some of the finer beer drinking establishments here in the Atlanta area to get on board with the AHA discount program? I know a lot of places that have craft beer events all the time, but most do not show any support for the AHA, which seems counter productive to me.
Greetings and welcome to the AHA! I'm glad to hear that you have already started enjoying some of the benefits of being a member. We are always looking to increase participation in the AHA Member Deals program, and as you can imagine there are great breweries and craft beer bars popping up all over the place. Feel free to send me an email
with suggested participants for the program. It always helps to hear from the AHA members where they would like to see offers coming from.
In addition to my attempts at getting new businesses on board, AHA members can help spread the word by talking to tap room or bar managers at their local establishments about the program. There is a whole page dedicated to the AHA Member Deals Program on the AHA site under "Business Tools
Here business owners can find information about the program, the AHA, and a list of promotional benefits for participating in the program.
