Beer bloggers interview brewers all the time and frequently socialize with them, too, but typically at some type of beerfest or event. So here’s the idea: anyone with some type of beer blog is welcome to participate.
“Over a pint.” #OverAPint. Sort of in the vein of The Session kicked off by Stan Hiernymous exactly 8 years ago in 2007 and still going strong. But whereas The Session entails a different blogger each month conceiving a disparate topic related to beer wherein everyone aims for that target and then said blogger hosts the discussion on his or her web-log, I’m envisioning just two instructions.
- Head out with someone who brews for a living and talk to them over a pint (or more) without recording it or taking any notes. Just chat. About stuff.
- Don’t do it at the brewery’s pub or tasting room.
