I’m just under 39,000 feet above you right now, Texas. And even though I won’t land for another hour or so, I still can’t get this one song about you out of my mind. It’s been playing on a loop inside my head for weeks…
The 2020 Beer Now Conference This week we’ve shared with you the incredible places and all the amazing beer we had in Montana as attendees of the Beer Now Conference. Today we’re excited to share with you the location for next year’s conference which is…
As we shared with you yesterday, we visited Great Falls, Montana this summer for the Beer Now Conference. While in Great Falls we visited a few breweries, enjoy several beer tastings, and attended the Montana Brew Fest. Suffice it to say, we sampled a LOT of Montana beer. That’s not a brag or a confession, that’s just a fact. #BeerBloggerProblems So, what did we learn on our summer beercation? We’re so happy you asked! We […]
When you think of a Montana adventure, you may not immediately think of Great Falls. After all, it’s not the largest city in Montana. It’s not the state capital or home of either of the states great national parks. Great Falls isn’t home to the most breweries either. Still, we think Great Falls it the perfect place for your next beercation. Hear us out… We visited Great Falls this summer for the Beer Now Conference […]
Last week many in the craft beer industry were shocked by the news of the Boston Beer Company and Dogfish Head Brewery merger. Certainly, you’ve seen the news and read the reaction comments and stories from every beer geek and their brother. Everyone has an opinion, including us, but you’ll be happy to know that isn’t what this story is about. This story is about our love of Dogfish Head, and last summer when we […]
Next week we’ll be heading to the East Coast to attend our 4th Beer Bloggers & Writers Conference. This year the event is being held in Loudoun County, Virginia, with excursions that offer experiences in Maryland, Delaware, and Richmond, Virginia. It’s an incredible time, and although we wish we could bring y’all with us in our suitcase but sadly, we can’t. (Blame the airlines and their crazy luggage fees.) Fortunately, you CAN experience the fun […]
Don’t call it a comeback, because the brewery culture never left Milwaukee. That was our takeaway from the 2017 Beer Bloggers and Writer’s Conference in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Mark Garthwaite, Executive Director of the Wisconsin Brewers Guild made that reference when discussing the local beer industry. Sure, they may be late bloomers when it comes to putting a craft brewery on every corner, especially when compared to a state like Colorado. However, nobody can dispute that […]
Hey there, Milwaukee. You don’t know us, but we’ve sure heard a lot about you. You’ve got a reputation as a serious beer city. There are songs about what made you famous, and the tales of you once being the top beer producing city in the world. We’ve heard all about your good old days as the Capitol of Beer, home to the biggest breweries: Miller, Pabst, Schliltz, Blatz, Shotz… Wait… we’re just learning that […]
There is less than a month before the 2016 Beer Bloggers and Writers Conference (BBC) storms the shore of Tampa Bay, much like the pirates who invade by ship each year during Gasparilla. If you’ve been to the conference before, we don’t have to tell you what a fun trip this will be. If you haven’t, well, we’ve written before about how incredible the BBC is and I’m sure this year will be no different. If you write about beer in […]
There are over 3000 breweries operating in the United States, with more opening nearly every day. While they all certainly have their individual merits, there are only a handful breweries that can be considered true tourist destinations. During last month’s trip to Asheville for the Beer Bloggers & Writers Conference, we were able to visit one of these destination breweries: Sierra Nevada in Mills River.
This past Monday we returned from the 2015 Beer Bloggers and Writers Conference in Asheville. We came home from North Carolina with suitcases full of beer and volumes of incredible stories, the latter of which we’ll be sharing with you over the upcoming days and weeks. However, we wanted to waste no time bringing you our Live Beer Blogging recap, since this is the event that we’re most often asked about when we’re discussing the conference.
