In an effort to continue providing craft brewers access to valuable insight into the branding, marketing and distribution of craft beer, Brewbound.com has made video recordings of its Brew Talks events series available on YouTube.
Launched in January, Brew Talks are gatherings designed to provide craft brewers, distributors and retailers the opportunity to come together and have in-depth discussions on craft beer.
Earlier this month, Brewbound traveled to The Hopleaf in Chicago to moderate a discussion on craft brewer and distributor relationships with David Kahle, the craft brand manager for Wirtz Beverage; Deschutes Brewery’s Gavin Stoub, the Illinois market sales manager in charge of managing distributor and account relationships and Chad Wulff, the Chicago-area sales representative for Oskar Blues. In March, Brewbound hosted Bill Butcher, the founder of Port City Brewing in Alexandria, Va., and John Bryant, co-founder of No-Li Brewhouse in Spokane, Wash. at Smith Commons in Washington D.C. There, the pair discussed methods of brand differentiation in a question-and-answer forum with Brewbound.com editor Chris Furnari.
Those videos are now available on the Brewbound YouTube channel and embedded below for your convenience.
Brewbound is currently planning additional 2013 Brew Talks events. Exact dates and locations will be announced soon.
