MARCH SOCIAL HOUR

Mar 6,2018 -     Time: 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Join us for a BTMA Social Hour!

Twice a year we forego our traditional luncheon meeting format in favor of an evening social hour.

This event is the perfect way to network with other business professionals while unwinding before heading home for the day. Our second social is at World of Beer!  Anyone can come for the member rate of $25 so bring a friend! Registration includes one drink ticket, appetizers, and a cash bar.

World of Beer will provide a selection of 4 different beers with the one drink ticket. Tickets are distributed upon arrival.

Recently opened in the Summit, World of Beer has 50 craft beers on tap, over 500 in the cooler and a menu of tasty tavern fare that’s crafted to go perfectly with beer. Whether you’re a beer master or just beer curious, their insanely knowledgeable staff guides you through every last pint, pour, and pairing. So c’mon. Join us for a social hour! Because there’s no better place to go around the world, one sip at a time. Every trip to World of Beer is a chance to share beers and stories from around the world. Simply put, they love all things beer - the tastes, pairings and amazing stories, people, and cultures behind them. They obsess about offering the best selection of craft beers from around the world and down the corner with a staff passionate on serving it the way it’s supposed to be enjoyed. NOTE: If you took advantage of the "Meal Plan" prepayment option, you still need to register. You just won't have to pay for each meeting since that was done in the lump sum prepayment.
