AMERICAN (craft beer week)

Welcome, all, to American Craft Beer Week! I’m a day late on this announcement, but only because the internet was a day late on drawing my attention to this news. According to Craftbeer.com, the official home of American Craft Beer Week (ACBW) … ACBW will be recognized May 14 – 20, 2012 and offers an exciting opportunity for small and independent craft brewers and the community of better beer retailers to celebrate the ever advancing beer culture here in the U.S. Plus, tens of thousands of today’s beer beginners, beer enthusiasts, and hard core beer geeks make time to toast the week. What the f**k did I tell you last week? Drinkers- especially those of beer- looove to celebrate things. Can’t say they’re reaching for it in this case, either. Though I once worshipped the cheap stuff, smaller breweries with more complex- and admittedly slightly pricier- beers have held my hand along the transformation… Read More »

Atlanta World Series Of Beer Pong Satellite Tournament

The back room of a bar can be reserved for a lot of things. It can be a place for regulars to escape annoying tourists. It can be a place for dancing or, if you go to the right bars, “special dancing”. And if you’re in the wrong part of town or the 1940’s, it can even be a place to get your craps fix. But on Sunday afternoon at Famous Pub, the back room was reserved exclusively for one thing: a group of people who were much, much better than me at beer pong. BoozinGear.com’s World Series of Beer Pong (WSOBP) Atlanta Satellite Tournament brought out teams from Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Maryland, and Virginia, each duo vying for a chance to represent BoozinGear.com in WSOBP VII next January. Now, as someone who spent four years in college pursuing a creative writing degree, I was able to log many hours… Read More »

Be a Volunteer

By , August 31, 2008 in Beer, beer festival

No, we here at the Boozin’ Blog are not promoting altruism; we wouldn’t want to be associated with THAT crowd. We’re suggesting that you do yourself a big favor and volunteer at a beer festival. The big season for festivals is just around the corner and many of them depend on volunteers to make things work. (You can find a nearby beer festival by checking out the beerfestivals.org or my beer festival schedule.) While there are lot’s of things to do at a festival most volunteers wind up pouring which is, of course, the most fun.  There’s no pay but there are perks. Most volunteers are invited to enjoy the beer within reason – you can’t be much help if you get sloshed. You will also probably get a tee shirt out of it and you get to spend a few hours with a bunch of beer lovers. Sounds like… Read More »
