If you’re a fan of craft beer in Los Angeles then you are going to want to clear your schedule for the evening of January 29th
The LA Beer Bloggers, a group dedicated to spreading the love for LA-area craft breweries, are teaming with the folks from Golden Road Brewing for an evening that will bridge the gap between social media and socializing.
Beer is social, and as much as we enjoy writing and reading about beer nothing beats actually sitting down to a glass with other craft beer fans. The Winter Situation is the first in a series of events hosted by Golden Road dedicated to getting out from behind our screens, putting faces to names (or Twitter handles), and having a couple of honest pints together!
On January 29th at 6pm the doors to Chloe’s, GRB’s upscale pub-within-a-pub (we just say “pubception“), will be open to “to Facebook fans, Twitter followers, beer blogging pals and homebrewing friends” for an evening of fresh Golden Road beer, guest speakers, and some other top-secret shenanigans.
Here’s a breakdown of the event:
Doors open at 6PM.
From 6:30-8:30PM the Golden Road beer and appetizers in Chloe’s are on us. Our full menu and beer lists from both The Pub and Chloe’s will also be available for purchase all night should you hunger or thirst for something more.
At 8PM the one and only John Palmer (ed note: Palmer literally wrote the book on homebrewing)and the illustrious Drew Beechum (ed note: Maltos Falconer and excellent beer-writer) will speak and answer questions on homebrewing and beer writing, offering their precious insights into brewing great beer and upping your beer writing game. If you don’t write or brew, no problem, they are great resources for learning more about beer all together.
After John & Drew time is over stay and hang until 11 PM. If you happen to blog, we’ll have a table set aside for you to share business cards with your peers and the like, so bring anything you feel would help you connect.
This is a great chance to meet all the beer bloggers that you love (you do love us, right?) as well as the people behind Golden Road’s social media efforts and other beer-industry luminaries. All you need to do is RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org with your full name, phone number, email address, and Twitter handle.
Here’s a link to the event page on Facebook, but remember: you need to RSVP via email to Cambria. An RSVP on the event page is not enough to get you into this (free) event!
Let’s step away from the keyboard and have a beer together!
