Skype Interview with Mark Dredge
Last week, we sat down in the States for an interview with Mark Dredge of Pencil and Spoon in the UK and were able to record it to share with you thanks to the power of Skype. We asked him how he started blogging, the difference between beer bloggers on either sides of the pond, and the importance of connecting with fellow bloggers. Finally, he had some great thoughts to share about big breweries and their relationship with beer bloggers, and how Kristy McCready of MolsonCoors is working to bridge the gap.
Join us online for a Twitter chat this Thursday, February 16 at 7pm London time/2pm EST to share your thoughts and continue the conversation with Mark Dredge. The chat will follow #EBBC12 and @beerbloggers will be moderating, with @markdredge answering any questions you have.
