With more than 120 craft breweries in the state, Connecticut is a popular place for beer enthusiasts. To keep track of all of them and to reward those who make it their mission to visit as many as possible, the Connecticut Brewers Guild had started the CT Beer Trail passport program to reward fans with prizes.
However, complications with the prize program, including complaints from patrons who have not received prizes, are just some of the issues that the Connecticut Brewers Guild have faced in recent months. In September, the guild’s executive director, Phil Pappas, announced that he would be leaving the company, which he worked at for more than five years. Since then, the guild’s board of directors have filled the position.
