5th Annual Foeder for Thought
Alongside our friends at Good Beer Hunting, we are excited to invite you to join us at our 5th Annual Foeder for Thought! Friday, March 9th, 2018 from 6pm-11pm. As in years past we will have unlimited samples of beer from a hand selected list of some of our absolute favorite breweries around the world. We will be highlighting a couple specific breweries throughout the night on stage, however, in an effort to expand our commitment to education and to bring you the most in-depth industry focused views and discussions, we've decided to partner with Good Beer Hunting to bring you a full presentation on the state of wild, funky, sour, and rustic beers. We'll have interviews and panel discussions that will be recorded and published on GBH (goodbeerhunting.com) in their podcast and with video on their site, so get your questions ready because you'll be able to listen to your intelligent inquiries over and over!
To take a look at last year's interviews, which highlighted Sun King, Blackberry Farm Brewery, Black Project, and Jester King follow this link:
