American Craft Beer Fest Volunteering

So I decided to volunteer and help out with the American Craft Beer Fest this year.  I've attended the last two years and always enjoy myself.  But working with the Not so Snooty fest the last two years has been so rewarding, I was hoping to take the opportunity to broaden my beer fest horizons a bit and work this one too.  I just need to wait and see if the good folks at Beer Advocate approve my offer to help out...

This might be a great opportunity for me to learn more about beer, breweries and running a good fest.  I may be able to leverage the experience to improve my charity work...

For now, I wait...

UPDATE!  Looks like I'm in...  I'll be working Sat, Session 1 (12pm-5pm) 

I'm really hoping I get to pour, or at least interact with the breweries...  But my luck I may end up rinsing out the spit buckets!  LOL!  Either way, it should be fun...  Stay tuned...

  1. Hi, I just stumbled in from biobrain.blogspot.com. Indirectly, anyway. He has some sort of stock market thing with a list of beer blogs and I clicked on this one. Very nice blog here, BTW.

    I just do partial mash, believe it's called. Steep the grains, etc. I live in an apartment and all grain seems too complex anyway. I've settled on an amber ale after flitting from trying this and that.

    Never used the dummies book, tho I like many of their books. I use John Palmer's How to Brew which is very good. And I get supplies from Midwest who are very good to deal with.

  2. Thank you for the kind words...

    I have not yet done the all grain thing yet either, it's an issue of time for me... But I will eventually get there...

    Midwest is a good place to purchase your supplies, I get stuff from there now and then, but I prefer to support my local shop...

    Take care!
