Who: Heaps of Brisbane ‘digi’ celebs
What: Inaugural, quarterly (ish) beers. For interactive people. In Brisbane. Brisbane Interactive Beers (BIBs)
Where: Grand Central Hotel in Brisbane
Over Heard: “I thought Nathan Bush was paying for everyone’s beers?”

A couple of weeks ago on a Thursday night lots of lovely people from Brisbane’s digital scene got together for the first ever Brisbane Interactive Beers (BIBs) at the Grand Central Hotel on Ann Street. The inaugural BIBs was light on intense industry chat and heavy on banter and beers which, along with a great mix of people from different sides of the industry, made for a friendly crowd sharing a few laughs and work war stories – and maybe a little too much to drink. Event organiser Nathan Bush intends to move the catch-up around to different venues so keep an eye out in your Fetch updates for the date and details of the next BIBs in early July.  There’s also a proposed shake up which could include a 10 minute guest speaker taking questions from the crowd and showcasing digital awesomeness, PowerPoint banned of course!

If you’re wondering if BIBs is for you – come along, say hi! At the very least you’ll get a beer out of it (eerrr just to clarify for Nathan’s sake, you’ll have to pay for the beer!)
