Taste What’s Brewing with the #FinCon15 Beer Tour? [RSVP]
Editor’s Note: Here’s Jeff, founder of Sustainable Life Blog and coordinator of the FinCon beer tour.
For those of you familiar with FinCon, it’s the time you’ve been waiting for.
For those of you unfamiliar with FinCon, you’re about to get details of the best event at the conference.
For those of you who are veterans of the St Louis & New Orleans tours, there’s going to be a few new things at this tour. Fear not, the best parts (awesome people and tasty craft beer) have been left intact.
All of those who have attended the beer tour in years prior and have yet to make it out, we encourage you to come. There’s nothing better than talking clickly vs google analytics with your (soon to be) blogging best friends.
First things first: We have pared this tour down from three locations in the past to just two this time. As usual, FinCon is packed this year and we understand if you have a scheduling conflict. We’re typically the best event, so we recommend putting our event at the top of your social calendar….but we might be biased.
Second: We’ve got a sponsor this year! The awesome team at Payoff has partnered with us. Here’s a note from the Payoff team:
What drives your money decisions? Take Payoff’s Financial Personality Quiz for a deeper look into your money mindset so you can make even healthier financial choices.
Now you may be asking, “Why should I take the quiz?” or, “I’ve already taken it, why should I take it again?”
Payoff’s science team has a post-FinCon surprise brewing for you! They’re analyzing the results to see which main financial personalities thrive in this industry. Are we a bunch of Storytellers, Adventurers, or maybe even Contrarians? Find out how the FinCon community stacks up against the national average!
Third: There’s going to be a game/contest on the brew tour.
Fourth: We need an accurate-ish head count, so please RSVP on the eventbrite page.
Now that all of that stuff is out of the way, lets get into where we’re going. Like prior years, the tour will be all walking (round trip, approx 1.5 miles), and we are planning on meeting in the hotel lobby at 5:40 pm, with a scheduled departure time of 5:45 pm on Friday, September 18.
Our first stop is the (awesomely named) Wooden Robot Brewing Company, where we will soak in one of the newest breweries in town and chat blogging over beers. You can catch up with old friends, meet new ones and totally nerd out. The Wooden Robot opened this summer, so I’m super excited to try out what they’ve got. The owners are awesome guys, and are really excited to have us. The walk from the hotel to the first stop is just under a mile, and should take 10 minutes or so for everyone to arrive. If you’re running late or dont feel like walking, you can take the light rail (http://www.lynxcharlotte.com/) and get off at the Bland street station.
From there, we will head to our 2nd (and final) stop of the beer tour, the Unknown Brewing Company, which is less than a half mile away. We can continue our chats (and the contest) there, and we will stay there until 7:45 pm, at which point you can head back to your room, or enjoy some talks at Ignite Fincon (There will be a group walking from the Unknown Brewing Company to Ignite).
We would like to officially welcome you to an afternoon of drinks, fun and networking with fellow bloggers and finance professionals. We want you to come and experience all that the Historic South End of Charlotte, NC has to offer. Come network and enjoy some suds!
Dont forget to RSVP on the eventbrite page.
For those of you map nerds (like myself) I’ve created a quick figure to show where we will be going:
