Brewbound kicked off its 2015 slate of Brew Talks events this week at Harpoon Brewery’s beer hall in the seaport district of Boston, Mass., where more than 130 people filed in to catch industry heavyweights from the city sound off on issues both local and national in scope. Kicking things off, a panel comprised of Jean-Claude Tetreault, co-owner of neighboring Trillium Brewing, Peter Burke, national sales director of Cisco Brewing on the island of Nantucket, and Megan Parker-Gray, the bar manager of beer hotspot Row 34, tackled the myriad elements shaping the city’s emerging beer culture.
Brewbound has invited Boston’s most innovative brewers and bar managers to discuss the local beer scene at next Tuesday’s Brew Talks meetup, being held at the Harpoon Brewery taproom. Jean-Claude Tetreault, the founder of Boston’s third production brewery, Trillium, will join Row 34’s Megan Parker-Gray and Cisco Brewers’ national sales director Peter Burke in a conversation on building a beer culture in Boston. Together, the trio will examine reasons why Boston’s beer culture has, despite considerable development in recent years, still trailed behind other major cities.
The first 30 days of 2015 are just about in the rearview mirror and Brewbound is gearing up to host another set of Brew Talks events around the country. Brewbound is pleased to announce that Brew Talks — a traveling meetup series for beer industry professionals — will make its 2015 debut at the Harpoon Brewery in Boston in February.
Brewbound’s first Brew Talks meetup of 2015 is set to kick off at tonight at the Harpoon Brewery Beer Hall in Boston. The event will offer more than 100 beer industry professionals an intimate opportunity to network and discuss the business of beer over a few cold beverages. For those unable to attend Brew Talks in person, we’ve made available a free live video steam the evening’s two panel discussions, which will begin at 5:30 P.M. EST.
Brewbound is pleased to announce its first group of speakers for the upcoming Brew Talks meetup, happening on Feb. 24 at the Harpoon Beer Hall in Boston. With merger and acquisition activity continuing to pick up in the craft sector, succession planning is becoming a much more important topic. Should companies stay the course, sell, and how should they consider the next generation of ownership while making those decisions?
