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 beer.
The events are also broadcast globally via a free live stream. Over the course of 25 charitable events since 2014, Brewbound has raised $55,000 for 23 non-profit organizations and connected with 3,000 beer industry professionals.
