Doug Haslam, a social business/PR professional (and huge fan of craft beers) is the panel moderator for a 45-minute panel/Q&A.We’ll talk about how we became passionate about beer (and got jobs), goals of the social channels, success/failures in social, and lessons learned.

Panelists include:

Lee Movic, Ambassador (ok, BadAssador) at Craft Beer Cellar in Belmont.
Lee tweets: @leemovic and @craftbeercellar

Tommy Michienzi, Social Media Coordinator for Craft Brewers Guild.
Tommy tweets: @Tommy_Hops and @CraftMass

Here’s something really fun and you can do it with two other social beer friends: After the panel, we can continue to network and up to 30 people will enter the actual beer brewing area of Hopster’s to start brewing their selection of beer. Those people will be able to pick up a case of personalized labeled craft beer (whatever flavor/type they choose) in time for New Year’s Eve. The cost for this has been discounted to $50/person (or $150 for the use of a beer making cask/kettle). If we get some more sponsors, we’ll lower that price.

The SMCBoston Board is looking for small $ sponsors (think $200-500 or whatever level). Reach out to Adam Zand (adamzandpr@gmail.com or 781-643-6960) or Chris Requena with any leads for us. For example, HB Agency sponsored for our recent “Tasty Beer and SNCR Social” at Harpoon tasting room. Reminder, Social Media Club is a nonprofit organization. Sponsor organizations will be listed on the Eventbrite invitation updates, on our Facebook group page, in our email invitation and from the podium during the welcome. Again, the event is free, we’ll serve flatbread pizza, you can buy additional food and beer, and you don’t have to brew beer if you don’t want to – this will be limited to 60 people total.

Our Generous Sponsors (More to come):

Foodie Journey is our first event sponsor, thanks to their founder and friend of SMCBoston, Kelley Kassa.

How Foodie Journey works: We’re a personalized service that interviews you to understand your travel needs and interests. Then we work with our personal network of foodies to come up with recommendations just for you. We’re not crowdsourcing recommendations like Yelp.  We’re not posting on message boards looking for recommendations.  We’re working with real people who we know personally to recommend restaurants they have been to. Think of Foodie Journey as your foodie friend to go to when you want to know where to eat.  Wherever you go. Email Kelley(at)FoodieJourney(dot)com for more information.
