The Beer Bloggers & Writers Conference is rebranding as Beer Now and has announced it will take place in 2019 in Great Falls, Montana with a date of June 6 – 8 and a focus on “adventure and beer” for its 10th anniversary.
Rebrand to Beer Now
We love bloggers. But after many discussions with key players, we have determined our community has reached consensus that the term “bloggers” is too limiting. Blogging, after all, is just one medium used by beer writers. Even with our switch in 2015 to the name Beer Bloggers & Writers Conference, we believe we are not including those who primarily communicate on beer via podcasts, photos, and video.
Thus, we are changing the name of the Beer Bloggers & Writers Conference to Beer Now with a new URL at https://www.beernow.org. Our target audience will continue to include:
- Beer Bloggers
- Beer Writers
- Social Media Influencers
- Beer Industry Communicators
Great Falls, Montana
We are extremely proud to be bringing Beer Now to the great state of Montana and the wonderful city of Great Falls, with a date of June 6 – 8, 2019, to celebrate our 10th anniversary.
We love Montana as much as we love bloggers. Zephyr Conferences is based in the small town of Red Lodge. Reno and Ryan on our conference team live in Bozeman and Missoula. Our sister company, Zephyr Adventures, runs tours in Montana each year. Yes, we are smitten with this, the fourth largest state in the country with only just over a million inhabitants.
And we think you will love it too. Not only is Montana great for outdoor adventures such as hiking, mountain biking, fly fishing, and river rafting but it is a hotbed of beer, with the second highest density of brewers in the United States. And for 2018, we will be combining this with our regular outstanding content, excellent beer, Montana hospitality, and outdoor adventure excursions.
Our host city, Great Falls, is located on the Missouri River and is the most centrally-located major city in the state. It is throwing out the welcome wagon with two great beer dinners and lots of local brews. Thank you to Visit Great Falls Montana for organizing this welcome to beer writers and influencers everywhere.
And to include a little adventure, we are organizing a pre-conference and a post-conference excursion, each of which will include outdoor activities as well as visits to area breweries. Details to come.
Registration is open now and we hope you can join us!
