So, you want to be a part of Pittsburgh Craft Beer Week eh? Great! Last year we had more than 300 events that spanned the 10 days of PCBW and this year we’re hoping for even more. Unlike previous years, this year we’re giving free access to listing events on the Events Calendar, with a few small stipulations we’ll get to shortly. That’s right, no sponsorship required to list events and help yourself have the best week all year. Let’s look at the requirements, then we’ll show you how to list an event.
There are only two real requirements for listing an event. First, the event must be craft beer focused. It must center around craft beer, craft brewers, or craft breweries, with bonus points if it’s Pittsburgh craft beer. Second, the event must be unique to Pittsburgh Craft Beer Week and the event must be interesting. In other words, we don’t want to list events that are just meeting somewhere to drink beer…it should be something fun and interesting that will bring a crowd to your establishment.
Every event doesn’t need to be a full-fledged beer festival, but it should be something memorable and interesting. Have a question about an event? Email us and we’ll help you determine if your event is a good idea, and help you make your idea even better if it needs some boosting.
*Please note: To keep events as quality as possible, we reserve the right to cancel or reject any events at our discretion.
Listing an Event
To list an event all you have to do is head over to this link and submit your event. Enter all the pertinent details, including an image of the bar/brewery/event to make it more eye-catching, as well as start/end times, venue information, and at the very end, the neighborhood the event takes place in. Hit Submit and you’re all set! We’ll review your event and get it listed within 24 hours. Make sure to list your event more than 24 hours ahead of time to allow for processing and review.
That’s it! Your event will be listed and ready for the world to view on the web and in the PCBW mobile app. If you’re a sponsor that paid, then your event will show up in the printed guide as well, as long as it’s in before the deadline.
Other than that, you’re all set! Thanks for submitting events and helping to make #PCBW 2016 the best one yet. Cheers.
