Brew Talks West Coast Tour Locations Announced, Sacramento Added

More than 75 beer industry professionals turned out for last year's Brew Talks event, held at The Lost Abbey in San Diego

Brewbound today announced the official dates, times and venues for its Brew Talks West Coast Tour, kicking off on July 14 in Portland, Ore.

The West Coast Tour will make its first stop at Breakside Brewing’s production brewery, located at 5821 SE International Way in Milwaukie, Ore., just 15 minutes outside of downtown Portland.

Brew Talks will also be held at Sudwerk Brewing in Davis, Calif. on Tuesday, July 15, and Angel City Brewery in Los Angeles on Wednesday, July 16. A fourth stop at Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens at Liberty Station is scheduled for Thursday, July 17.

Designed to provide beer industry professionals with an intimate opportunity to network and discuss the business of beer in craft-friendly locales, the Brew Talks West Coast Tour will offer attendees insight into the marketing, branding, investment and distribution strategies of the country’s most successful craft brands.

At each location, editor Chris Furnari will moderate discussions on the business of craft beer with well-known brewers and distributors. Official speaker announcements will be made next week.

While previous Brew Talks events have been offered to brewing community members at no cost, this time around Brewbound has decided to partner with Safe Water International, a non-profit organization dedicated to sourcing clean drinking water in the world’s poorest rural areas. 100 percent of the suggested donation proceeds will be donated to SWI.

To help kick off the fundraising effort, Brewbound is donating $2,500 to support SWI in their mission of identifying clean drinking water solutions and promotion of local marketplace involvement in delivering those solutions.

The Brew Talks West Coast Tour is sponsored by Owens-Illinois, the world’s leading glass container manufacturer.
