Last year I had a beer in all 351 Massachusetts towns and raised approximately $40,000 for cancer research. This year I will be having a beer in all 169 CT towns to raise money for Smilow Children’s Hospital at Yale-New Haven. I am excited to meet all the great people in Connecticut.
Check out the places I will be going or where I’ve been using one of the links above. You can send me suggestions too! You can follow me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and right here throughout the year to track my progress!
I can’t believe I’m already 20% done. Town #34 was an awesome place called the Steelhorse Saloon. Amazingly nice owners here that got a bunch of people together to donate to my cause. Really good food too. Channel 3 filmed here a few weeks back and Scott the owner said he wanted me to come back at a later date so that people could donate. Thanks so much for a fun night.
So happy I stopped in Dive Bar. It is so tiny, but such a cool bar. I love these types of places. A couple people that follow me on social media showed up to say hi and make a donation. I’d definitely come back here if I have some more time!
Just popped in for a quick beer and hit the road to town #33.
Rooster Tail Inn
I finally made it here! These towns are crazy that have no cell service or GPS. This is definitely a place I think I will have to come back to later in the year. The owners said I could stay here when I am nearby, which is always nice. I think I am going to come back in the spring or summer for an event here and stay over. It’s such a beautiful part of the state. The owners were telling me about all the celebrities that own homes in this town.
G.W Tavern/White Horse
I went to the White Horse Tavern for a beer and it was absolutely packed and nowhere really to sit so I decided to leave and go to the G.W. Tavern. Both places were really cool. The bartender at the G.W. Tavern made a $20 donation to the charity. We struggled on a #hashtag for Washington, but settled on “Rolling Stones” when they told me the story about how they practiced in Washington in the 1980′s for a whole summer. You can read about that here:
When I say I was in here for 1 minute. It is no exaggeration. Most people could not find a place for me to have a beer in Morris, but someone told me about this place. It’s BYOB. I was going to go in and sit down and have a beer, but when I walked in, I realized it was a restaurant with no bar, so it would have been awkward sitting at a table drinking a beer. I brought my beer in and had a few sips (It counts!) and took off and headed to Washington
I originally had the painted pony set up, but one of the guys that follows me on Facebook, Alex Buddy told me to come here. I’m glad I went. It was a great place. A few people donated and bought CT Pour Tour Bracelets. I could only stay about an hour because I have a few places on the agenda for today. Definitely a cool place, and a successful stop!
Today i went to WilliBrew to help make some brew. They are making a beer named Ct Pour Tour. It will be ready in about 2 weeks so I will be going back to try it. I left there early because of the snow and drove right past Hanks. I figured since I drove by I may as well stop for my beer. This will probably be my quickest beer of my entire tour. I was in and out in about 8 minutes. I hate driving in the snow so wanted to make it quick. Seemed like a decent place.
