Last night, The Saltys were held at the Saint John Ale House...and I won the blog category! As cliché as it sounds, I was so excited just to be nominated. Even when I see the analytics and know that people are reading my blog, it's not the same as seeing real live people who tell me that they have been following. It was a fun evening, seeing some old friends and meeting some new folks from our great community.
Here are a few photos from the night, borrowed from Twitter & Instagram users who used the hashtag #saltys or who tagged me in their posts.
The beer for the evening: Moosehead Cask Ale, dry hopped with Dulse.
Can you get any more Salty than that?

Eeek! My awkward acceptance speech
Thank you so much to all the organizers and sponsors of this event. It is such a unique opportunity to make real life connections from online connections, and to recognize social media as a way to be truly social the old fashioned way.
