A few months back I did a PechaKucha presentation on my favourite subject, beer! If you’re a stranger to what Pecha Kucha is, here’s the definition taken from their website:
“PechaKucha’s 20×20 presentation format shows your 20 chosen images, each for 20 seconds. In other words, you’ve got 400 seconds to tell your story, with visuals guiding the way. PechaKucha means “chit chat” in Japanese. This creative outlet began as nighttime get-togethers in Tokyo in 2003 by two renowned architects. Since then, three million people have attended PechaKucha events worldwide.”
Talking about beer for just six minutes was hard. In the beginning I really didn’t know how to approach the presentation, debating whether I should just discuss one brewery, one beer style or make it cover a larger variety of beers and breweries.
In the end I decided that I wanted to make it all a bit personal and I wanted to strive to keep it energetic and intriguing for the audience, who may never have even heard of some of my favourite beers. So, I settled on doing ‘My beer journey around the world in the time it takes to drink a pint’.
Before you take a listen, bear in mind that the term ‘trip around the world’ is a slight fabrication as I only managed to cover the UK and USA. You also need to imagine that I am drinking a glass of Peaches & Cream form Tiny Rebel throughout and those sips take time 😉
This mini beer tour covers: Marston’s, Tiny Rebel, Beavertown, Anchor, Lagunitas, Brooklyn Brewery and Goose Island. My goal really was to cover beers that the audience could easily get hold of in their local supermarket and to encourage them to perhaps take their first foray into drinking some of these awesome beers.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy listening:
I’d love your feedback 😉
