Beer Buddies, Please Remember to 
SHOW YOUR BUDDY CARDS :-)

Buddy Hubs need to know Beer Buddies are supporting their businesses. They can only see the value of being a Buddy Hub when Beer Buddies display their cards. Feel uncomfortable receiving a discount? Simply tip the server extra to cover the full amount. Happy servers equals happy owners and businesses. The more often they see the cards, the more familiar they are with them.

Thank you for supporting the current Buddy Hubs,
More Buddy Hubs coming soon!

Check out the updated list of  Buddy Hubs!

 Don't have a Beer Buddy card? Get yours  Here!

Thank you and Cheers!
