Today’s craft entrepreneurs are looking beyond their core lineups and exploring alternative growth strategies, choosing to expand via collaboration, joint ventures, bi-coastal expansions and new brand creation. To talk about those strategies and growing creatively, Brewbound will be joined at Coronado next week by Port Brewing’s Tomme Arthur, Peter Zien of AleSmith, and Neva Parker, head of laboratory operations at White Labs.

Brew Talks San Diego: Defining Craft

Brew Talks San Diego: Defining Craft

Brewbound is pleased to announce its first group of speakers for the upcoming Brew Talks meetup, happening on March 10 at the Coronado brewery & tasting room in San Diego, Calif. On tap, is a discussion on how those within the industry decide what’s craft and what’s not. Several industry stakeholders, and consumers, categorize the craft segment not by ownership but by brands — even those the Brewers Association would say are “non-craft.” So what is craft beer? Societe Brewing’s Douglas Constantiner and Mike Sardina, O’Brien’s Pub/Nickel Beer Company owner Tom Nickel, and a to-be-named speaker from Coronado will debate the topic at next week’s Brew Talks.
