We are proud and honored to announce that Haines Brewing Co. has been chosen as an American Small Business Champion by SCORE and Sam’s Club. The American Small Business Championship (championship.score.org) awarded this title to 102 small businesses, two in every state and the Disctric of Columbia, for their dedication to the success of their businesses. The American Small Business Champions will each receive a $1,000 Sam’s Club gift card, an all-expense-paid trip to a training event, SCORE mentoring for one year, and promotion throughout the year to showcase each Champion’s story. Each of us is also eligible for one $25,000 grand prize. When we began our business in 1999 our dream was to provide fine craft beer and a comfortable gathering place for our community. This prize will help us fine tune that dream, and to run our business wisely. We’ll keep you posted on our progress — cheers!
