If you are a lover of great craft brews, you too can be a part of San Diego's first-ever American craft beer conference, imposingly titled (nay ... invitingly titled) Beer Con.
The event offering attendees exclusive insider access to the world of craft beer is coming to the Handlery Hotel in San Diego August 27th.
On the proverbial tap: drinking beer, speakers speaking about the drinking of beer, and drinking more beer.
The conference's impressive line-up of speakers includes industry veterans like Anat Baron, Director of Beer Wars, Drew Beechum, author of The Everything Homebrewing Book, and Ashley Rouston, whose job title at Bison Brewing is Director of Awesomeness.
Speaker presentations will include everything from the business of imbibing (e.g., Transitioning your Bar/Opening a Brewery, Beer and Social Media, etc.) to seminars on the basics, e.g., Beer Tasting 101.
For the casual beer enthusiast, there's also a beer garden called Tap Haven, which will offer suds from some of Southern California's most established breweries, including The Bruery, Stone Brewing Co, Green Flash Brewing, and more.
