- A two day conference where bloggers congregate in sunny San Diego to essentially “talk beer.” In addition to learning how to get ahead in the blossoming new media niche of beer blogging, there are many intriguing people to meet, breweries to be checked out, and of course, glorious beers to be tasted.
- Plan to attend the Breakout Sessions that you will benefit most from and familiarize yourself with some of the more interesting beers in advance. Here, let us help you out with that:
Family-owned Warsteiner has been brewing pilsners since 1753, when Antonius Cramer first produced beer at his modest home brewery in Warstein, Germany. Since then, nine generations of Cramers have built Warsteiner into the number one imported premium pilsner among Germany’s private breweries.
Today the Warsteiner Brewery is a state-of-the art facility in Warstein that spans 80 soccer fields and fills 50,000 to 260,000 bottles, 55,000 cans and 1,000 kegs per hour. Warsteiner exports to more than 60 countries each day by moving 40,000 pallets and processing 130 trucks. Its innovative logistics system includes a brewery-owned railway system that ensures optimal shipping conditions for the freshest product worldwide.
Warsteiner Premium Pilsener, Warsteiner Dunkel and Warsteiner Edition Oktoberfest are imported into the United States by Warsteiner Importers Agency, Inc. in West Chester, Ohio.
3. Webster’s defines “bloggers” as individuals who record their personal opinions, activities and experiences on a website on a regular basis.
With that said, Warsteiner defines “beer bloggers” as sophisticated, highly intelligent individuals who appreciate the finer things in life, and are passionate enough to record their personal opinions, activities and experiences related to beer on a regular basis when they could be writing about anything else. Cheers to them!
4. Warsteiner will be serving two fine options at the Beer Blogger’s Conference: Warsteiner Premium Pilsener and Warsteiner Dunkel.
Only brewing water, barley malt and hops are used in traditional brewing, according to the German Purity Law of 1516 – which underscores the importance of these natural raw materials for beer quality. Both Warsteiner Premium Pilsener and Warsteiner Dunkel are brewed with:
- A special combination of bitter and aromatic Hallertau hops that is unique and a key component of the well-balanced, mild-hoppy taste.
- Top-quality brewing barley cultivated from well-known German producing regions and from Champagne, both which enjoy optimal climatic and soil conditions.
- Fresh Arnsberg Forest spring water (among other sources) obtained at the brewery in Warstein, Germany – a naturally soft water that helps contribute to the beer’s wholesomeness.
- A special bottom-fermenting yeast strain for wort (brewed with water, barley malt and hop extract) that is exclusively available for the Warsteiner brewery and, throughout our history, has been kept constant in its characteristics by complex yeast propagation procedures.
Warsteiner Premium Pilsener is a world-class international pilsener with a purely mild, crisp hop tone for a slightly tart, always refreshing, taste experience.
Warsteiner Dunkel is an exceptionally smooth lager with a roasted malt taste and a lingering, slightly sweet aftertaste. The delicate aroma and extraordinary coloration result from a careful barley malt roasting process.
5. Zeitgeist is the defining spirit and culture of this decade, viewed through the wisdom of Warsteiner’s 261-year brewing history.
