The Session #96 - Announcement

The Session, a.k.a. Beer Blogging Friday, is an opportunity once a month for beer bloggers from around the world to get together and write from their own unique perspective on a single topic. Each month, a different beer blogger hosts the Session, chooses a topic and creates a round-up listing all of the participants, along with a short pithy critique of each entry. (more on Brookston Beer Bulletin).

So, here we are. It was 4 months ago that I wrote Jay and Stan suggesting a topic for a future call. I was reflecting on the role played by Beer Festivals (or "Beer Fairs", as we locally call the ones with the brewers serving their own beer) here in Barcelona and thought it would be interesting to know other people's point of view on the matter. Time's flown since then, and now I find myself happily hosting my first Session. But let's get to it.


The discussion at hand is "Festivals: Geek Gathering or Beer Dissemination?". I guess it is pretty much clear, but apart from exposing whether the answer is A, B or C (the latter being "it depends") I expect participants to give us some insight into their local beer scene to better understand the importance or irrelevance of Festivals in each area. My guess is that it can be quite different depending on the popularity of beer in different countries and cultures.

To participate in the current Session just write a comment down here with a link to the article on -or before- February 6th, so that I can include it on my Round Up.

  12. I thoroughly enjoyed your insightful exploration of the role of beer festivals in Barcelona and beyond. Your perspective on whether these events are Geek Gatherings or platforms for Beer Dissemination added depth to the discussion. Your well-crafted post not only tackled the global aspect but also delved into the local beer scene, providing a nuanced understanding. I appreciate your hosting of this Session and look forward to more engaging topics in the future. Cheers!

  13. One benefit of China Bopp pearlized film suppliers films is their low environmental impact. One polymer that works well with recycling systems is BOPP, which is derived from polypropylene. As a result, less trash ends up in landfills, which is better for the environment. Reduced environmental effects result from using BOPP pearlized film instead of heavier, more conventional packaging materials.
