Brew Talks: The Road to Recovery ft. Dogfish Head, BevMo! and More

The first Brew Talks virtual meet up of 2021 will take place Thursday, May 13. The agenda is locked in, featuring panel discussions on the road to recovery and the blurred lines of the beer category.

The first panel of the day, starting at 3 p.m. ET, will reconvene several panelists from the April 2020 Brew Talks to reflect on the pandemic, one year later and the path forward. Last year’s discussions focused on adjusting to the real-time effects of the COVID-19 global pandemic as on-premise outlets such as bars, restaurants and brewery taprooms were just beginning to shut down. The industry was adapting on the fly, adjusting to create new ways to reach consumers.

One year later, what’s next? These industry leaders will discuss the new normal and lessons learned.

Panelists include:

  • Julie Verratti, co-founder, Denizens Brewing; Associate Administrator of Field Operations, U.S. Small Business Administration
  • Sam Calagione, co-founder, Dogfish Head Craft Brewery
  • Amy Gutierrez, category manager – Beer, BevMo!
  • John Lane, co-owner, Winking Lizard Tavern

The virtual Brew Talks event will take place from 3 to 5 p.m. ET and can be accessed through our virtual event venue. Registration is free but required for access.
