I feel real strongly that brewing is so much about community. We inspire, learn from and teach each other, and we share a mutual love for the magical process that creates beer. And when that beer is done, its always good to have someone – or a few someones – to share it with. After all this isn't your average can a' beer, but a lovingly crafted piece of art.
Anyhow, I digress. I know; I tend to get a bit wordy. Sorry guys. I'm pretty excited about all the participation so far, though, and I hope you guys are, too. In fact, there's already been one successful borg meet-up.
Intended as a grass-roots effort powered by YOU, our goal is simply to provide an easy way for all you social brewers out there to meet up, show off your beers and to support each other in your brewing efforts! The goal of MUG is to empower local Mr.Beer fans to learn, share, make friends, or to just plain ol' have a good time!
It's you that's going to make it happen - we're just here to help. We've setup a brand new forum category where you can post offers for a potential local meet-up, or to discuss planned meet-ups. Use the forum to establish interest in a local meet-up. Once you determine interest and set a date, then post an announcement for the details of your event. You can share beers, visit a fellow brewers home, meet in a park, arrange a pot luck, enjoy a ball game, it's all up to you. Take initiative or decide as a democracy on dates, locations, etc.
Start a MUG today!
Disclaimer: Mr.Beer is no way responsible for your meet-up. Participation is at your descretion. Any activities or events that go on are completely of your own making. Stay safe and don't drink and drive!
