With the event just one month away, we also have a few program updates to share:

We’re very excited to announce that Dan Wandel, IRI Worldwide’s principal of beverage alcohol client insights, has joined our lineup of expert presenters. During his presentation, Wandel will share the most current craft trends, provide a snapshot of craft activity in the Midwest and describe how craft’s “long tail” is altering the entire U.S. beer landscape.

The Startup Brewery Challenge will also make its return to the Brewbound Session for a fourth edition this summer. This bi-annual business pitch competition, presented by Craft Brew Alliance, gives U.S. craft breweries (on the market for less than two years) a chance to showcase their business plans, sample one core product offering and receive immediate feedback from a panel of expert judges. The winning company will receive an all-expenses-paid trip to Portland, Ore., take part in one-on-one business coaching with CBA executives and brew a collaboration beer at Widmer Brothers’ new pilot brewery.


Among others notable speakers, Brewbound Session attendees will have an opportunity to learn from and network with:

  • Andy Goeler, CEO of Craft, Anheuser-Busch InBev
  • Alan Newman, President, Alchemy & Science
  • Scott Whitley, President, Tenth & Blake (MillerCoors)
  • Dale Katechis, Founder, Oskar Blues
  • Joe Deth, Partner, Revolution Brewing

View a complete list of speakers.

Focused on the business side of craft brewing, Brewbound Session provides an excellent opportunity to learn marketing, investment, and distribution strategies, as well as hear case studies of successful brands in a highly collaborative atmosphere.

Brewbound Session Chicago ‘15 will take place on June 11 at Moonlight Studios, located at 1446 W. Kinzie in Chicago, IL.
