On this week’s bonus episode, we’re going to get to know some of our subscribers, a community we started called Fervent Few. These folks subscribe to GBH like a magazine, supporting us financially each month, and as part of there subscriber benefits, they join the GBH team in a community forum where we discuss a wide range of topics, often including professional retailers, brewers, distributors and sales people with expert perspectives. But in the Fervent Few community, everyone has an equal voice, and a respect for others opinions. I’ve been thrilled to see so many genuine and intellectually honest conversations transpire.
Our Fervent Few community is managed by Jim Plachy, and each week he hosts a weekly topic with our members. We're going to get to know him a little bit better, and I think you'll see why we immediately fell in love with him and put him in charge of this thing. He joined as a subscriber himself, and through a natural force of personality, pretty much took over anyways.
Then we'll ring up a couple Fervent Few members and get their perspective on the community, and what they thought about this past week's topic, the new Independent logo created by the Brewers Association.
