Brewbound’s ‘Brew Talks’ Heads West

In an effort to continue providing craft brewers access to valuable insight into the branding, marketing and distribution of craft beer, Brewbound.com will take its educational meetup series – Brew Talks – on the road for a weeklong West Coast tour that will make stops in San Diego, Los Angeles, Portland and Seattle.

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 the business side of craft beer. The free events serve as an educational and networking opportunity for beer industry professionals and all events are broadcast globally via a free live stream.

The Brew Talks West Coast Tour will take place in the last half of July and the official dates and venue announcements will be made within the next two weeks.
