Classifieds / Do you love Food & Beer?
« on: February 24, 2012, 09:10:21 AM »
MODS:  If this is the wrong place for this thread please move it; looked around and it seemed like the best place.

As many of you are already aware www.love2brew.com offers daily content Mon-Fri on a range of homebrewing topics. Recently our professional Chef Harris Mayer-Selinger who covered our food/beer column had to move on. This means that we're looking to fill that position ASAP!

If you or anyone you know fits the following initial criteria we would love to hear from you!

· Enjoys cooking/food

· Enjoys cooking food with beer!

· Can write/review recipes

· Enjoys beer (Homebrewing is not required, but it helps!)

· Really enjoys quality beer and food pairings.

· Enjoys writing

That basically it! We’re just looking for another passionate individual to join our team. If you are interested please contact me directly at ron@love2brew.com for more details (requirements, compensation, etc.) and a small writing sample. This is a great opportunity for someone who enjoys writing as a hobby, enjoys food/beer, wants to be a published contributor, help be a part of a growing homebrew community, and/or thinks that they would be a great fit. We’re looking forward to hearing from you!

Classifieds / New Homebrew website needs writers!
« on: August 10, 2011, 02:13:12 PM »
In October 2011 love2brew.com and our physical love2brew homebrew store location will launch (store located in central NJ).   One of the things we are doing a little different from our competitors is providing daily content in variety of areas in an effort to make love2brew.com a destination location for many home brewers. 

One of the key areas of focus in our mission is to give back to the home brewing community.  Both I and my partner Mark started our first homebrew together over 4 years ago.  Since then we’ve both become enveloped in the hobby although branching out in different ways.  A key to our success was the local and virtual homebrew communities so we want to build a business that continues to contribute back. 

We’re looking for homebrewers who would be interested in writing content on a weekly basis; often being 3-4 weeks ahead of time.  We are reaching out to individuals as well as posting a general application for people to apply to.  There will be some minor compensation on a per-article basis that has the potential to grow as our business does.  We are looking for writers for the following categories:
•   Beginner (novice) level brewing
•   Advanced Brewing
•   Hardware
•   Recipes (creative, traditional, unique, etc.)
•   Beer & Food pairings (This slot is already taken by a up and coming professional chef from Manhattan)

If you’re interested in learning more please contact me directly at ron@love2brew.com.

You should state the following:
•   Your full name/phone/email
•   Which category(s) you would be interested in writing for
•   A brief about your home brewing experience, how long you’ve been brewing for, and why you think you’d be a great candidate to write.

We’re looking for consistent writers to help build our brand but also their own “personal brand” however we will also be looking for alternates from time to time.


Thanks

General Homebrew Discussion / AHA Conference Talk - Power Points
« on: June 23, 2011, 10:41:08 AM »
Does anyone know where (or when) the power point presentations will be available from the AHA National Conference?

It was an awesome event but I just couldn't take notes fast enough!


Thanks

I would say one of the keys to teaching people, especially if they're new to homebrewing, is to focus less on the technique and more on the feeling of how easy it is for them to do it.  Get them excited and confident and you'll have done your job well.

I definitely can relate and understand your frustration with the bottles but it's tough to get them back at times.  Most of my close friends understand how long it was to initially take off all of the labels of my 200+ bottles so they're pretty good about getting them back.

Maybe take some time to explain to them what the process is like?  Good luck!
