TBW2017 Event Ideas
Unique and creative events are a great opportunity to engage craft beer enthusiasts and new customers during a week of heightened awareness about craft beer. It is a week of connecting with passionate craft beer drinkers who are looking for new experiences not only during TBW but throughout the year. The goal of TBW has always been to promote and increase the awareness of craft beer and as a partner, we will work together to further grow and develop the craft beer market.
Successful events should inspire, educate and tap into people’s curiosity which will make them enthusiastic craft beer lovers all year long. Here are a few ideas to kick start your events planning:
- Offer special beer flights, by style, region, vintage, packaging or brewing process
- Offer educational events geared towards brewing styles, history, science, technology, art and culture
- Organize a beer and food pairing meal that showcases ingredients, cooking/brewing styles and culture. It could be Brunch, Lunch, Dinner, Appetizers, Desserts, Cheese, Chocolate.
- Plan a Meet the Brewers grain to glass educational session to help connect craft beer drinkers with the brewing process and gain more of an insider’s perspective of the brewing profession
- Who doesn’t like a friendly competition? Why not organize a games events – card, board, trivia or a beer scavenger hunt.
- Beer cocktail tastings is another great way to extend your market reach and tap into the latest drinks trend.
- Music and beer always goes well together. Live music showcases, battle of the (brew) bands, DJ night, karaoke.
- TBW is a great time to host and release an evening of special, one-off beers.
We publish a yearly beer guide, coasters, posters and beer labels that will be distributed to you to help market and promote craft beer and TBW. While we are designing this year’s marketing materials, take a look at what we created last year.
