Live Beer Blogging at BBC14 in San Diego

1 room. 120+ beer bloggers.  8-10 different breweries, each with 5 minutes per table to talk about the beers they are pouring. What are we talking about?  The signature event at the Beer Bloggers Conference:  Live Beer Blogging

Live Beer Blogging is a fast-paced, social media blitz that encourages quick absorption (and dissemination!) of information, on-the-spot assessment of the beers poured out and tasted, and rapid-fire communication via various forms of social media.  It is game on with a/v screens displaying all the tweets & posts, bloggers poised with palates ready to taste and fingers ready to type, and breweries primed with their stories to tell and brews to taste.
