Beer Bloggers Conference!

You may recall a while back I was calling for a Beer Bloggers Conference that sparked some good commentary including some info from the organizer of the Wine Bloggers Conference, indicating they were looking to get a BBC started.

Good news! Beernews.org broke the story earlier this month that the Conference is a go!

It’s taking place in Boulder, Colorado from November 5th through 7th (Friday through Sunday). There is room for about 150 people and there is already a skeleton of an agenda posted; here are some more details:

Who Should Attend

  • Citizen Bloggers who write about beer or the beer industry.
  • Industry Bloggers who have a blog related to their brewery or other beer industry business.
  • New Media Innovators who work in the world of blogging and social media.
  • Beer Industry members who would like to learn about new media or interact with bloggers in attendance.

Cost, Payment, Cancellation, and What is Included

The cost of the conference is $95 for citizen beer bloggers (those unaffiliated with a business or organization), $195 for industry beer bloggers (those whose blog is affiliated with a brewery, retail store, or other business or organization), and $295 for non-blogger participants (industry, media relations professionals, friends and family, etc). We are able to offer a lower price to citizen bloggers and beer-industry bloggers because it is for these folks our sponsors underwrite the conference. Payment is required in advance by credit card.

The conference includes multiple beer tastings, two dinners, and outstanding content. Not included in the conference price are your hotel and transportation to and from Boulder.

I’m in, in some way, shape or form.

    Have you run this through with your wife besides just informing her of the creation in passing? ;)

    Yup, I get busted on a regular basis. :)

    The “in some way, shape or form” part leaves it open; if I can’t make it in person, perhaps there’s a sponsorship opportunity or something similar—some way to get The Brew Site there.

    No, I just keep you honest. :P

    Also, how do these beer things keep falling on your children’s birthday (or what will likely be the party weekend)????
