Craft beer adventures and experiences… one pint at a time

This quote is so apt for this weekend!!!

How better to motivate me to quote more, write more, observe more, and share more on this blog than to attend a Beer Bloggers Conference?

I’m in Asheville this weekend with 100+ other writers/bloggers/community leaders from all over the U.S. doing just that. This is my 5th bloggers conference (I’ve only missed one since it started in 2010) and it’s a homecoming of sorts reconnecting with peers from almost every state who share my passion. #bbc15

Craft Beer is an amazing hobby that brings together passionate, optimistic, inspiring people with regular jobs, but who share the love of the world’s oldest purified beverage.

We gather annually in a vibrant city where craft beer is thriving (past cities include Boulder, Portland, Boston, Indianapolis, San Diego, and now Asheville,) and spend an agenda planned weekend of brewery visits, lectures, networking socials, and sharing.

Here in Asheville, our day 1 included visits to Oskar Blues brewing and Sierra Nevada, where we hobnobbed with brewery dignitaries -‘thank you to both breweries and to all of our conference sponsors and organizers.

I’m inspired to start trying new things with this hobby and I need your input (please and thank you)…

What would YOU like to see on this blog? Local brewery reviews/visits or events and photos or videos of places I visit or something different?

Here’s your incentive… I’ll pick a commenter at random and award s/he with some craft beer swag… So, go!

  1. How about some photos of brewery storefronts and associated owners and staff with names, so we recognize them. First-time visitors might appreciate a photo of where to turn off the main road for some easy-to-drive-by breweries (Pair O’Dice comes to mind). Throw in some photos of unusual beer bottle labels. It might be cool to know when new releases are about to happen. Beer reviews are always welcome. Maybe review/recommend some growlers that are good to fly in checked luggage. Suggestions how to ship beers. Publish beer related terminology, e.g., whalez.

    That’s enough. I’ve got a million of these.
