Beer-ConA few weeks ago Beer-Con, a beer convention being held August 27th at the Handlery Hotel in Mission Valley was quietly announced with a few tweets and links to the website. The one day convention appears to be aimed at both the regular craft beer drinker that wants to learn more about beer as well as industry folks hoping to learn from those that have successfully proved themselves in the beer world.

The full agenda hasn’t been posted yet but speakers will include Stone Brewing Co. Co-Founder and CEO Greg Koch, “Dr.” Bill Sysak, Beverage Supervisor at Stone Brewing World Bistro and Gardens, Patrick Rue Founder of The Bruery and more.

This will be the first Beer-Con but the organizers have a strong track record in the San Diego beer community. Those involved in putting on Beer-Con include Tap Hunter and Awesome Beer Drinkers.

August is still a few months away but the earlier you register the less you pay. Prices range between $175 and $299 depending upon when you register. Using the discount code “sdbeerblog” will save you an additional $50 at checkout. Click here for registration.



Updated 5/26/2011 to note that the discount code above is an affiliate code which if enough people register using it I will be offered a discount or free pass to the convention.
