Brewbound is excited to announce that Brew Talks, our traveling meetup series for beer industry professionals, will make its official return in 2017 alongside the 34th edition of Craft Brewers Conference, being held in Washington D.C. in April. The industry-only Brew Talks meetup, hosted in partnership with Dogfish Head Craft Brewery on Tuesday, April 11, will offer brewers, distributors and retailers a chance to participate in three hours of top-level business discussion and networking at Penn Social (801 E Street NW, Washington, DC 20004).
Brewbound is excited to announce that there will be a special edition of the traveling Brew Talks meetup series on Wednesday, May 4 during the 2016 Craft Brewers Conference in Philadelphia. In partnership with Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, Brewbound will host two thought-provoking panel discussions with executives from the country’s top craft breweries and a pair of retail experts. A special one-on-one conversation with Dogfish Head founder Sam Calagione will also be featured.
While innovation of beer styles has proven to be an effective method of differentiation (just ask Wynkoop), the intentions and business models shared at the Brewbound Session affirmed that brewery executives with large-scale ambitions recognize their roles as not just liquid vendors, but also as message diplomats and entertainment hubs.
For a craft brewery to succeed today, it must produce high quality, consistent and well-differentiated beers, according to Sam Calagione, founder of Dogfish Head, who gave the keynote address at today’s Brewbound Session in San Diego, CA.
