New Tampa startup that helps users pair craft beer and food is hosting a launch party Aug. 16 at the World of Beer Carrollwood.
TAMPA, Fla–Brewmasters.Club, a mobile device application that will allow users to find the best beer and food pairing in their immediate vicinity, is hosting an event to kick off their first round of crowdfunding Aug. 16 at 8:45 p.m. Their goal is to raise $9,850 – enough to cover the cost of building the first version of its app.
The launch party will include free beer tastings from local Tampa brewery, Big Storm Brewing Co., complimentary hors d’oeuvres from Carmel Café paired with $4 drafts from World of Beer and live music. Guests will also get an exclusive first glance into the startup tech company.
“Learning about beer and food pairing started out as my job in 2007, it evolved into my hobby and passion,” said app founder, Donnie Gallagher. “Our goal is to translate our working beer knowledge into easily accessible information for our users, this way they can have the ultimate beer drinking experience.”
Brewmasters.Club was founded in 2007. Gallagher and his team have more than 8 years of leading beer tastings around the country. Five of those years Gallagher was employed by Anheuser Busch as a Brand Ambassador. Over the next few years, BMC’s team became experts on proper storage, how to drink a beer ‘correctly’, how to pour a beer effectively and much more. Gallagher has led more than 2,300 beer pairing instructional sessions in his career.
“The app is only the beginning. Using our exclusive flavor algorithm, we can predict hundreds, if not thousands of pairings and combinations. It’s truly unique,” said Chett Foltyn, co-founder of the BMC. “Taking the guess work out of pairing food and beer is what our team views as a catalyst to craft beer truly establishing itself as a movement”.
The event will be sponsored by Big Storm Brewing Co. and Carmel Cafe and hosted at the World of Beer Carrollwood, in Tampa, Florida, (Located at 12904 N Dale Mabry Hwy, Tampa, Florida 33618) On August 16 from 8:00 p.m. to 10 p.m. This event is open to the public.
Media interested in covering the event are encouraged to contact Donnie Gallagher, at Donnie@brewmasters.club to attend.
