Call to Action: Vote for “Localization of Beer” Talk 1


Coincidentally, Internet week is happening in New York City at the same time as American Craft Beer Week (May 14-20, 2012). Essentially, Internet Week is a large, crowd-sourced festival with events taking place all throughout New York City. Most events are individually run by third parties.

Internet Week NY runs a program called Make the Stage, which allows anyone to enter a pitch or proposal in one of eight categories on www.makethestage.com. Each category awards two winners 45-minute slots onstage at the Internet Week NY headquarters at 82 Mercer, one chosen by public voting and the other chosen by a team of Experts in the field.

This year Julia Herz, Craft Beer Director at the Brewer’s Association, submitted a talk on the “Localization of Beer”, which has been accepted and is now open for voting. Only two winners chosen per category — one chosen by public voting. Which is where all of you come in!

If any of you have a moment, and are willing, please submit a vote for Julia’s talk here. Note that voting does require you to sign up and enter your name and email address. It is a mere a 30 second quick process and they will not forward your information.

Best of luck to Julia! Cheers to Craft Beer!!!
