One day a few months ago I was checking out the website of one of my favorite breweries, Great Lakes Brewing Co.(GLBC) from Cleveland, Ohio. In their “Beer Talk” section I read something that caught my eye. 2010 was the year of the “World’s First Beer Blog Conference,” to be held in Boulder, Colorado in November. This was a dream for me! Traveling to Colorado, networking with other bloggers, meeting more people in the beer industry and social media experts was tailor made for The Hoppy Nomad! However, as I have mentioned in previous blogs, money is tight and unfortunately I was unable to attend.
The folks over at GLBC knew that not all beer bloggers were able to participate at conference, and in “Beer Talk,” they held a contest of sorts. They wanted to hear from beer bloggers who didn’t go to Boulder. They wanted to give those of us a chance to be highlighted on their website. If selected, this could be a wonderful opportunity to reach out to more people. If the people at GLBC thought my blog and writing was captivating enough, perhaps they would highlight me! Lo and behold, highlight me they did (do I sound like Yoda?)!
I am very proud that The Hoppy Nomad was recently selected as “Beer Blogger Feature.” It is quite an honor indeed, especially from a quality brewery like GLBC. I look forward to my next trip to Cleveland and I hope you make it out there someday, if only to visit GLBC. It’s worth the visit. Not only does Cleveland rock, GLBC totally rocks.
