Who Should Attend

  • Citizen Bloggers and Writers who write about beer or the beer industry.
  • Industry Bloggers who have a blog related to their brewery or other beer industry business.
  • New Media Innovators who work in the world of blogging and social media.
  • Beer Industry members who would like to learn about new media or interact with bloggers in attendance.

The Agreement 

Published beer writers are considered Citizen Bloggers & Writers for the lowest rate.

Citizen Beer Bloggers (those unaffiliated with a business or organization except a media outlet) pay a reduced rate if you agree to write at least two blog posts about the conference. What you write about is up to you – the conference itself, a sponsor, a beer you try, the content, etc. Industry bloggers (those connected to a business or other organization) pay a partially reduced rate if you agree to write at least one blog post about the conference. If you choose not to accept this condition, you are free to register at the General Registration rate.

To sign up as a blogger, you must have an active (at least three current posts) blog that has been in existence at least three months. You must be listed as a contributor on the blog. Friends and spouses you wish to bring with you who are not clearly identified on your blog as part of the team need to sign up under the general registration category.

Please be accurate in selecting your category as we will confirm your status and it takes both of us a lot of time if we have to contact you.  Please note we do not have registrations for only part of the weekend and you cannot share your registration with someone else. If you must cancel your registration, your payment is 50% refundable up through 30 days prior to the conference and not refundable after that.
