Beer blogger meeting – blog corner at the CTFoB

January 23, 2012

I think it is a good idea for people, that are interested in and/or is writing about beer, to meet. I do believe that beer bloggers and writers  in Cape Town should have an annual meeting (or more often). It could be at the same time as the Cape Town Festival of Beer in order to get some more people to come.

At the moment I know about 3-4 people that blog about beer and brewing in South Africa.

Blog corner
Another idea is to promote a “blog corner” at the Cape Town Festival of Beer. A corner where bloggers and writers could meet brewers and get the chance to talk to them in a relaxed environment. A nice sofa, a table and internet connections (if people do not have there own or if we would like to broadcast some beer radio/TV) is all that is needed.
Such a corner would be a good idea for the festival as well because it would help people write about the festival and give it publicity. I also like the idea to talk more, taste more and “drink” less. They had such a corner at the Stockholm Beer & Whisky Festival and it was a success.

    Hi Joakim,
    I think this is a great idea and should I be in CT for the festival I would like to get in touch with you. I am new to the blog scene so I am keen on meeting up with some fellow craft beer fanatics! I am based in Joburg but get down to CT every now and then.
    Keep up the good blogging bru!

    Great to see some new local beer blogs popping up, would love to meet everyone sometime. Absolutely agree that we need to organise an annual meeting of some kind.
