For anyone not playing along with the home version of mybeerbuzz.com, a month or so ago I asked our readers to speak up. It was my theory that collecting the opinions and ideas from our local beer loving patrons and passing that info on to our local beer businesses would be a win-win situation for everyone. It seemed so simple and fit so well into the mybeerbuzz mission statement, “Bringing God Beers and Good People Together” so away we went. In the end we had comments from close to 100 beer-loving readers. I was surprised at the response and surprised and how many common themes there were in what readers wanted. I was also very happy to see I received very few requests to add 200 tap handles or any other such unrealistic requests. So OK Local beer lovers, the results are in.
I’ve decided to split the results into several posts for each broad type of beer business. I’ll first post up results for our local breweries since there were fewer requests relative to breweries. From there I’ll post results for Distributors/Six Pack/Bottle Shops and finally our largest response, beer bars. Please keep in mind these comments are meant to be observations and not in any way criticism. So stay tuned local beer lovers and beer businesses for Part 1 of In a perfect beer World—What Do We Want coming soon?
