Brewery Leaders to Discuss Increasing Competition, Innovation at Brew Talks Chicago


We’re just one day away from Brew Talks Chicago, being held at Revolution Brewing’s Kedzie production facility, and the final agenda is now available for viewing.

Forbidden Root founder Robert Finkel and 5 Rabbit Cervecería founder Andres Araya will discuss the state of innovation in craft brewing and their experiences operating highly-differentiated craft breweries. Throughout the conversation, moderated by Brewbound editor Chris Furnari, Finkel and Araya will explain the challenges and opportunities that accompany going to market with a portfolio of beers that often feature unknown, exotic and expensive ingredients.

About Brew Talks

Since hosting our first event in the basement of a craft beer bar in Boston in 2013, the Brew Talks meetup series has developed into a multi-city tour where beer industry professionals can come together inside of some of the country’s most recognizable craft breweries and share business insights with one another.

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. Through its nine meetups in 2015, Brewbound connected with more than 1,000 beer industry professionals and raised $10,000 for local non-profit organizations.
