Beer Bloggers Conference 2011

Yep, The Dredge announced it to us on twitter earlier that there will indeed be a Beer Bloggers Conference in London in 2011.
So, are you going? I think it'll be fascinating and well worth going. The tough part for the organisers will be finding a suitable venue so any ideas feel free to send them to Mark or myself and I'll pass them on to him.

I just hope the organisers realise that beer bloggers over here aren't the pretty young things like in the USA or they may be in for a very ugly shock!

I can see the appeal for any sponsors as they're guaranteed a lot of internet coverage but what exactly do you do at a beer bloggers conference? Listen to technical talks on webpage design? Hear about how to improve your grammar? Or just get pissed with other beer nerds?

Little of all of that I think Ed. I could use a bit of education for my blogs(man that's walking into abuse).

Could be a big circle jerk of nerds constantly using the word "Awesome!!!"

What? There's going to be a conference? Says who? Shouldn't the first step be, like, sort of asking other bloggers if they want or feel the need to have a conference?

Hi Barm, almost everyone that has been spoken to has reacted positively to the idea so they organisers have decided to go ahead with it. Personally, if you hadn't guessed, I think it'll be great. It's not like bloggers are being forced to come though.

Sounds like a great idea! I would definitely be up for it, a great chance to discuss what we all do, focus on innovation and discussions with key breweries would be good. Let's network!

I think it's a great idea. I've been to too many boring, irrelevant conferences around the world with work and now an exciting and interesting conference is landing on my doorstep. Excellent.

What we will do at the UK conference is a good question. We the organizers of this past weekend's Beer Bloggers Conference in Colorado think we have a good idea of what a US conference should have but in working with The Dredge (as Rabidbarfly calls him) we understand a UK/European conference might be different. We'll try to first secure a date and location and then will come back to all of you for your input so we get it right.
