December’s Brewbound Live conference will bring a diverse group of thought leaders and entrepreneurs together to discuss emerging trends, industry headwinds and the future of brewing.

Attendees can expect to participate in high-level business discussion while gaining key insights to help them successfully navigate a competitive beverage alcohol marketplace.

In addition to a range of dynamic presentations and panel discussions, the event will offer up-and-coming brands the opportunity to compete in Brewbound’s “Pitch Slam.”

The Pitch Slam welcomes makers of adult beverages beyond beer, including cider, hard seltzer, and alcoholic kombucha, to take the stage in Brewbound’s one-of-a-kind business pitch competition. Respected industry veterans — including brewers, distributors, retailers, investors, marketers, and consultants — will judge.

Pitch Slam participants and early-stage entrepreneurs are also invited to participate in a half-day crash course, where they will meet with and learn from experts in brewing, distributing, retailing, and sales and marketing.

Hundreds of beer industry professionals — including prominent beer company executives, leading distributors, craft-centric retailers, and investors — will attend the Brewbound Live business conference.

Don’t miss your chance to engage in thought-provoking conversations with established industry veterans, innovative thinkers and trendsetters. Discounted pricing is being offered to all attendees who register by Friday, October 25, 2019.

Official speaker and agenda announcements will be made in the coming months. Supplier and service companies interested in sponsoring Brewbound Live should contact Bryce McDonald about opportunities. Please visit for additional information.
