Brew 2.0: Molson Throws a Sudsy Event for Bloggers in Vancouver

The event: A 50th Anniver­sary Cel­e­bra­tion of when the Mol­son Com­pany pur­chased the ‘6th’ Brew­ery in Van­cou­ver (that would be in 1958). The crowd: Van­cou­ver Blog­gers. The pro­ceed­ings: Well, we got to taste a lot of great food, took a tour of the brew­ery, met some of the top peo­ple within the com­pany, and even downed glasses of some spe­cial 50th Anniver­sary Beer cre­ated just for the occasion.

I under­stand that most of the atten­dees also got a deliv­ery of a case of beer from Mol­son (Mine never came; I sus­pect there was a bit of a snafu since I entered by a dif­fer­ent door than most — even though I was fol­low­ing the instruc­tions of the invi­ta­tion to the letter).

Update: The case of beer, with a hand­writ­ten thank-you note for attend­ing the event, came about a week or so later. Mol­son def­i­nitely sweats the details. Colour me impressed.

Post­ings include:

Miss604, who cov­ered the event with some nice pho­tos by her hus­band and also fel­low blog­ger, John. Arieanna of Blo­ga­holics also got some great pics from her hus­band, Ianiv. Tanya (aka, NetChick), Ryan, new blog­ger Danny Dang , Tris Hussey, Colleen Coplick, Duane Storey and Hummingbird604 all did a fine job describ­ing most of what went on, and took tons of photos.

So what do I have to add? Ah, I do have a video of some of the begin­ning of the event, thanks to the Flip Video Cam­era:
