Brewbound is excited to announce that Brew Talks events will be held during the upcoming Great American Beer Festival (GABF) and National Beer Wholesalers Association (NBWA) shows.
Brew Talks, Brewbound’s traveling meetup series for beer business professionals, will gather leading industry brewers and distributors for in-depth discussions about the future of the craft beer segment and intimate networking opportunities.
Official speaker and agenda announcements for both meetups will be made in the coming weeks, but attendees can expect to hear thought-provoking dialogue on the maturation of the beer category.

The program is designed to provide members of the beer community with an opportunity to come together and have in-depth discussions on the business of craft beer and the events are also broadcast globally via a free live stream.
