In 1 Week, the Beer Industry Converges on Santa Monica

In just six days, Brewbound Session’s official Welcome Reception will bring together some of the brightest minds in beer for casual conversation before the big show. Conference attendees will have the opportunity to share stories and advice with fellow beer industry professionals over a couple locally crafted beers.

Hosted by Santa Monica Brew Works (1920 Colorado Ave C, Santa Monica, CA 90404), the event will take place from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM, leaving enough time for attendees of the conference to enjoy a few beers and make meaningful connections with like-minded entrepreneurs and executives.

Important: The welcome reception is only open to registered attendees of Brewbound Session Winter 2017, taking place at the Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel. If you are interested in attending both the Welcome Reception and the main conference, online registration is still open.

On Wednesday, November 29, conference-goers will also enjoy a perfectly paced agenda that allows time to sample attendee beers, meet leading industry vendors, and continue discussing the future of the beer category off-stage. And once the conference concludes, move your conversations to the Acadia Foyer at the Loews for a post-event happy hour from 5:00 PM to 6:00 PM.

Unable to make the trip to Santa Monica? You will miss out on the networking, but you won’t miss out on the main stage dialogue. Make sure you tune into the free livestream on November 29th from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Watch an expert speaker lineup evaluate the state of the beer industry, assess new growth opportunities, and discuss the future of beer.

About Santa Monica Brew Works

Santa Monica Brew Works was founded by a group of guys who share a mad love of beer and the City of Santa Monica. The brewery opened in July 2014 and is the only production brewery on LA’s Westside. The brewery’s five signature beers – – 310, WIT, XPA, IPA and PCH – – use the finest natural ingredients and are craft brewed with the highest standards. The “core five” are sold on tap and in cans in restaurants, hotels, supermarkets, entertainment and sports venues throughout Southern California including Dodger Stadium, LA Forum, Hollywood Bowl, LAX, and Whole Foods. The brewery’s 200-person tasting room serves an impressive choice of specialty beers and is a go-to destination for locals and tourists alike. The company plans to expand throughout California in 2018.
