Attention Beer Nerds!
This year, we’ll have the “buzz tent”, where hobbyists and enthusiasts can talk shop with the brewers and other folks who take the craft seriously. Become more intimate with what you’re drinking, or learn how to start your own beer career!
Throughout the afternoon, Women Enjoying Beer, an educational group, will give a number of presentations, speaking at 12:30pm 2:00pm, and 3:30pm. They’ll cover a range of topics, including the female beer consumer and how one goes about marketing to her. Brewers of the Gorge, including Walking Man, Backwoods, Everybody’s, Double Mountain and Big Horse will take part in Q&A sessions.
