Bryon Turner founded the CT Beer Trail in early 2011 with the goal of promoting Connecticut's craft beer culture. Leveraging connections made through planning an annual charity event that features craft breweries, Bryon set off to unite the states craft beer community online and beyond.
Today the CT Beer Trail actively represent craft beer bars, every brewery, and most of the brew pubs and home brew shops that operate within the state, both online and at events. The online community offers these businesses an opportunity to connect with their fans. Through the site's Trail Blazers Club local craft beer related businesses offer their loyal customers discounts and incentives.
The CT Beer Trail also works with charity organizations and event coordinators to promote festivals and give away free tickets all year long.
