Hey Chadd -

I did the same thing in 2008. Tom Rapp is now the head organizer of Bay Area Beer Socials, and I'm in the background as an assistant. In my case, I just grew tired of being the main focal point in organizing events - and Tom and a couple of other people are very enthusiastic about beer - so the group is in good hands.

Like yourself - I still do a couple of events here and there.

Hello fellow Hop Heads!

I am writing to you to let you know I am stepping down as head organizer.  I first joined Hop Heads on June 8, 2006, they day after the group was first founded.  I was very active recruiting members and organizing events as an assistant organizer. In January (I think) 2007, I took over as head organizer.  For the next couple years, we had a lot of momentum.  I made sure we had a beer event on our calendar every week; my assistant organizers and I kept up this momentum for a couple years.

A couple years ago, I started to burn out with the organizing thing.  And that has clearly shown with our significantly reduced number of events, announcements, and message board activity.  

After running the Hop Heads for almost 5 years (holy crap, really??), I chatted with my assistant organizers, who also happen to be my good friends :) about finally passing the baton.  Derek Smith, a bad ass homebrewer and craft beer enthusiast, has stepped up as head organizer.  Dan Scott, one of the masterminds behind Sacramento Beer Week and a humungous Ween fanatic, will be the co-organizer.  With Derek and Dan, the Hop Heads will remain in very capable hands.

I will be taking a back seat as an assistant organizer, and you will see me around here and there.  I still love beer. I am still an avid homebrewer, and I will continue to attend major beer events locally and nationally year round.

If you would like to organize an event, please feel free to use the suggestion tool on the site or contact Derek or Dan.

Thanks again Derek for stepping up as head organizer, and Dan for supporting as co-organizer.
