PorchDrinking Does Craft Brewers Conference 2014
Well, folks, Denver is the lucky city this year to host the Craft Brewers Conference for 2014. Denver is already equipped for the influx of beer heads because of the annual Great American Beer Festival that occurs every October in our fine city of suds. This year, though, we are also host city for the Craft Brewers Conference AND the World Beer Cup. And all in the same week. I don’t know how more stoked I can be than I am right now to announce that PorchDrinking.com will be there to provide coverage. Pre-and-post event coverage, live tweeting and, as always, a terrific banter to accompany the beerversation. Why? Because in the end, #itsjustbeer, right?!?
The Craft Brewers Conference, hosted by the Brewers Association, is the only industry event that serves both brewpubs and packaging breweries.
Follow us as we venture through the daily events, seminars, expositions, demonstration, and nightly events. We will be using the hashtag #PDdoesCBC2014 to document our journeys. Please follow along with us Twitter and on Facebook as well.
Here is the schedule and quick run down of the conference below. We will also be posting a comprehensive list on Monday of all of the after party events. Until then, check the PorchDrinking Weekly Denver Beer Beat for the first part of the week. Cheers!
