QC Beer Week Love

As I’m putting together my final thoughts for QCBW 2017, notes for next year, and such, I’m feeling so grateful for everyone who helped me this year. From my personal friends and business contacts to and different establishment and media outlets, I felt a lot of love this year. I’m proud to be a member of this community and look forward to contributing to its’ growth.

This year, here, I’m collectively putting together all my thanks and mentions in one place in order to fully highlight everyone involved.

Thank you to:

The MUGZ Home Brew Club with special mention to Curt Johnson and Eric Goodyear. The QCBW idea came from MUGZ the first year, it was in the second that I took over at Event Organizer. Without the club, it wouldn’t exist, and without those two guys mentioned above, I don’t think I’d have my mind.

Amber and Scott Hancock at O’Keefe’s. Thanks for saying we could have an event there even though the weather said otherwise.

Frank and Jackie, owners of SIPPIS, and a special mention to their server, Caesar. Though the weather was chilly, so few showed up for the meal, it was so much fun and the food was amazing. Thank you for taking a chance on me.

Tim Kavanaugh and the Hilltop gang. Thanks for letting me have a tapping there and working with me at the last minute.

Thank you Pat Martinez at Bent River, for everything and then some.

Thank you Rich Nunez and Radicle Effect Brewerks for putting on the QC Tap Takeover every year. You know how much I love you.

Thanks for Baked Beer & Bread Co. for jointing QCBW this year, I look forward to working with you again in the future.

Thank you to Jason Parris at RIBCO for having Stout Wars in conjunction with QCBW. I thought that was such a badass combination and a great way to end the week.

Thank you to the support from the local media!
