Several beer activist events coming up in the next few months. Hope you can join me!

SPEAKER: Christophe Tulou, Director of the District Department of the Environment
WHEN: Tuesday, July 27, 6pm – 9pm
WHERE: Sonoma Restaurant & Wine Bar, 223 Pennsylvania Ave. SE, Washington DC
MORE INFO: This event is intended to connect eco-executives. I agreed to be a sponsor and that’s my only real involvement. The organizers say “Admission is based on your corporate affiliation and will be granted strictly to C-Level Executives, Business Owners, CSR Executives, Sustainability Executives & Non-Profit Leaders.” So if that description fits you, I hope you’ll join us for the event. More details on the website. This is essentially corporate schmoozing for the eco-in-crowd. Sounds snooty, I know. So if this isn’t for you, then check out the next event below …
