BevNET’s Expands into Southern California

WATERTOWN, MA —, the web site published by, Inc. and dedicated to serving the growing craft beer community, is pleased to announce its expansion into Southern California with the addition of a conference series located in San Diego, as well as a San Diego-based sales and editorial staff.

Brewbound will host its third semi-annual conference for the craft beer industry, Brewbound Session, at the Paradise Point Resort in San Diego, CA on November 29, 2012. Previous Brewbound events were held in Santa Monica, CA and New York, NY.

“We’re really excited to relocate our West Coast Brewbound event to San Diego,” says Chris Furnari, editor of “Brewbound Session was designed specifically for entrepreneurs looking to enhance their understanding of the craft beer business. San Diego is such a hotbed for beer entrepreneurs and it made complete sense for us to move our event to a city where so much innovation is occurring.”

Brewbound has also added a full-time sales and editorial staff in San Diego, who will be focused on covering Southern California’s rapidly expanding craft beer market. According to John Craven, founder and CEO of Brewbound’s parent company, “Southern California, and San Diego in particular, is experiencing unprecedented growth in the craft beer industry. Having a physical presence in this market will allow us to more quickly and easily cover new products and trends and to serve the needs of those in the industry.”
