I'm drinking a beer in all 169 CT towns this year to raise money for children's cancer research.

Last year, I raised $43,000 in Massachusetts and I'm hoping Connecticut can top that. I met the best people by going to all 351 MA towns and I'm excited to meet the great people of CT in 2014.

I will be having my beer tour kickoff from noon to 9 p.m. (Ruggere says he'll be there until around 5 p.m.) on Saturday, Jan. 11, at Two Roads Brewing Company in Stratford. They are my official sponsor.

[According to a post shared on the CT Pour Tour's Facebook page (linked below), a dollar of every pint sold on Jan. 11 will go toward Todd's cause.]

The people of CT have already been so welcoming. I've been contacted by over 100 bars, and have even been invited to some house parties and cookouts in some of the towns that don't have bars.

Please send me any suggestions or just say hi! I'd love to meet you for a beer!
