AHA Member Deal Testament Quote Needed
« on: March 29, 2019, 02:00:09 pm »
Hi all - We're redesigning a few areas of the AHA website, and we'd like to add a few quotes from our members about how often they use their homebrewer discounts (aka AHA Member Deals).

If you feel so inclined to post a quote here that we'd be able to use on the website, I'd be happy to send you some AHA swag in return! We'd like to also accompany these quotes with pictures of our members homebrewing. You can post your quote here, and I'll follow up with you via email for a picture - or you can just send it all to me via email: Matt@brewersassociation.org

Also (while I have your attention) - if you have an idea for a new AHA Member Deal location, be sure to let us know. We follow up on all of the requests submitted here: https://www.homebrewersassociation.org/membership/aha-member-deals/request-new-aha-member-deals/

For someone like me on a fixed income the AHA discount at homebrew shops is really helpful.

Here in Colorado we have a lot of member deals available so it's easy to find savings on beer all over the state. It's a great excuse to check out new beer destinations.

I spend $43 a year on membership and go to Iron Hill Brewery, where I receive a 20% discount on beer and food! In a couple of visits, I get my investment paid back!

I use the AHA member deals when I am on the road. It’s a great way to find local breweries and bars that market to homebrewers and it pays for my annual membership too.

NH is getting more and more AHA members deals every day, including Kelsen's Brewing in my town which also put in a pizza oven! Bingo!  Too bad they're going to build an interstate exit ramp right through their brewery but they said they want to stay in town!

I wear my AHA hat frequently and am always happily surprised when the server tells me that the discount was applied!

Living in Denver, I rarely have an issue with using my member discount at breweries. Which pays for itself throughout the year.  Many breweries in other states however are unaware of the member card/discounts until I present it to them.  Most times the server speaks to the manager and they end up honoring the 10-15% discount.  This tells me, even if they’re not listed on the app as a participant they still support Homebrewers and understand how vital we are to the brewing community.

I regularly seek out breweries and stores that offer AHA member discounts.  Those places are supporting home brewing, so they get my support first.

  Not much of anything in the way of member deals in my neck of the woods, so for me it's a non-benefit. FWIW.
I spent most of my money on beer, tools and guns, the rest I foolishly squandered on stupid stuff!

Let's get some deals around you, then! Send us some ideas for where you want to see 'em here:

https://www.homebrewersassociation.org/membership/aha-member-deals/request-new-aha-member-deals/

We add at least 1 new deal every day, so I am sure we can work on getting something lined up near you!

There are too many benefits that go with being an AHA member. Local brewing store discounts are nice. Brewery discounts on food and beer have been a membership plus. I will add that this is not why I’m a member however. I’m a member because I want to support brewing families just like mine. Families that love all things beer. Prost!
