Truly a signature event of the Beer Bloggers and Writers Conference, this year we are having our Live Beer Blogging event at Lost Rhino Brewing Co. So what is this thing and what will we do?
Think of it as Speed Dating (with Beer). We will set up at round tables and give 10 breweries five minutes each to bring one beer to your table, pour a sample for you, provide information, and answer questions about the beer and their brewery. It’s the most high-energy, high-impact, and efficient ways to sample 10 beers in under an hour.
What you do: well, depending on your main social medium, we ask you to immediately tweet, post, Instagram, Live video (Vlog), and blog about your experience with each beer, each brewery, or your entire session. We also want your feed to include #BBC18 and #LiveBeerBlogging, as well, of course, tagging the brewery and whatever branded hashtag they want to promote (ASK THEM!).
Don’t be shy, some of the veterans are putting out between 50-100 tweets in the hour. The content can include photos, first impressions, quotes from the breweries/brewers, and overheard remarks from the other writers at your table.
