Craft Beer Obstacle Course Debuts at MT Brew Fest

Craft Beer Week, Beer Obstacle Course, & MT Brew Fest all During BeerNow19 – Great Falls Craft Beer Week featuring Mighty Mo Brewing Co., Jeremiah Johnson Brewing, and Black Eagle Brewery seems to be a natural for the first Beer Obstacle Course I’ve ever heard of.

The kick-off event to Craft Beer Week is a fun, but challenging Beer Obstacle Course. Local gyms, climbing centers, and even furniture stores provide the obstacles and we provide the “hydration stations” between the obstacles. Attendee’s get to have a taste of some local beer to help get them through the course while the “spectator section” enjoys live music, food, and a selection of local brews as well.

Check out the events at their website www.gfcraftbeerweek.com.

ProBrewer Mail > Real Beer News – Sign Up Now

In case you missed it a couple of weeks ago, we announced that after 26 years we are discontinuing the monthly Real Beer news mailing list.

Instead, we’ll be focusing all our attention on the industry side of our favorite industry. Time flies, and only recently did we stop to realize is has been almost 22 years since we launched ProBrewer.com, first calling it the Professional Brewers’ Page. There were only 1,100 craft breweries at the time, a lot less used equipment, a lot fewer brewers looking for jobs. Nobody talked about canning lines, Cryo hops, or glitter beer.

Sign up now for ProBrewer Mail.

It’s free, will look different from Real Beer news, will be timely and packed with industry news relevant to every aspect of professional brewing.

Why we’re shutting down our discussion board

We’ll admit it. realbeer.com has been stuck in the aughts since . . . the aughts.

It’s time for change, and you will see that in the coming months.

Meanwhile, the most obvious change will be that we are closing the discussion board. We fondly remember the evening of Oct. 9, 2006 when 3,062 visitors were congregated here. It saddens us that we hear echoes now when we stroll through empty forums. That and practical considerations are why we decided to shut the doors.

We hope when we are done remodeling you’ll find new ones you want to open. For now if you want to get to the forum you can head to http://discussions.realbeer.com/forum.php — but we’ll be taking that down in a little under a month.
