2019 Beer Now Conference | Great Falls | June 6-8, 2019

June 6 @ 8:00 am

It was a real treat to be able to announce in person the bringing of the 2019 Beer Now Conference to Great Falls , Montana! As I mentioned Friday morning, I feel very fortunate to call Montana home and be such a beneficiary of its vibrant, award-winning beer scene.

For the sake of brevity I didn’t get to outline every detail of why Great Falls, its timing in June, and what the opportunities are to be involved. So here’s more information:

Why Great Falls? Three reasons, mainly.
1) As I did say, they put together an incredible proposal to bring the conference there, with appreciation of the work going to Jacob Bash from Visit Great Falls

2) Since this is the conference’s 10th anniversary, we wanted to feature several outdoor, active excursions for our influencers, and Great Falls is central to many, many opportunities (some of which you and/or your brewery can be part of!).

3) We timed it to be part of the Beer & Gear Festival / the 2nd Annual Great Falls Craft Beer Week!

Strategically, we figured it would create more opportunities to get you and our influencers together if you were already coming up to Great Falls for the brewfest. By the way, if you haven’t been part of the Beer & Gear Festival before, and you’re planning on attending/pouring because of the conference, PLEASE let the organizers know why you’re coming up.

What opportunities are available for you?

There are two main ones I want to share here and now, but to know all that’s available, you’ll want to get in touch with Reno Walsh, our Sponsorship Director who lives in Bozeman, Montana. Email him at [email protected]!

Don’t wait, the best spots fill first!

Expo: $1,000…(Scratch that! For Montana breweries it’s half price! $500!)

Host a table with your marketing materials and banner that will be on the perimeter of the conference room from 8:30 to 4:05 on Friday, June 5 & Present your product and information during the Beer Expo on Friday, June 5 from 4:05 to 6:05

Option to have your banner in the foyer on Saturday

Beer Now Conference will email all attendees a list of all sponsors along with those sponsor’s contact information once prior to the conference and once following the conference

Includes one conference registration

Live Beer Blogging Sponsor: $500…(Scratch that, again! For Montana breweries it’s half price! $250!)

Twelve breweries will each pour one beer to the BeerNow audience in one hour. This is the preeminent event at the conference that has been conducted since the first year!

Breweries have five minutes to pour their beer for a table of bloggers, present to them, and allow them to write about the beer on their blog or on social media. Pourers then rotate to nine more tables of bloggers. This allows breweries the opportunity to pour one beer for a table of bloggers for five minutes at a time for approximately 100 beer bloggers in total.

*Not a Brewery?*

We still have space for you at our Expo, as well as other unique opportunities to showcase your brand or product. Get in touch with Reno (above) to discuss!
