Brewbound is excited to announce that Brew Talks, our traveling meetup series for beer industry professionals, will make its official return in 2017 alongside the 34th edition of Craft Brewers Conference, being held in Washington D.C. in April.
The industry-only Brew Talks meetup, hosted in partnership with Dogfish Head Craft Brewery on Tuesday, April 11, will offer brewers, distributors and retailers a chance to participate in three hours of top-level business discussion and networking at Penn Social (801 E Street NW, Washington, DC 20004).
Official speaker and agenda announcements will be made in the coming days, but attendees can expect to hear thought-provoking dialogue on the maturation of the craft beer category — and the companies within it — as well as an in-depth discussion about the modernization of the three-tier system.
Doors will open at 4:00 P.M., and conversations will begin promptly at 4:30 P.M. Attendees are invited to imbibe and socialize until 7:00 P.M. A selection of Dogfish Head beer offerings and a selection of Penn Social menu items will also be available.
Due to space limitations, ONLY brewers, distributors and retailers and members of the media will be allowed to sign up at this time. All other supplier and service companies wishing to attend the event should email John McKenna at firstname.lastname@example.org or 617-231-8825 to inquire about sponsorship opportunities.
Brew Talks — gatherings designed to provide craft brewers, distributors and retailers the opportunity to come together and have conversations on the business of craft beer – will offer attendees an excellent opportunity to gain business lessons and network with other beverage entrepreneurs.
Please Note: This is a ticketed event and a donation of $10 will be required for entry. No free tickets or media passes will be available for this event and 100 percent of registration proceeds will be donated to a local charity.
With nearly 14,000 industry professionals expected to converge on Washington D.C. in April, Brewbound encourages anyone interested in joining the Brew Talks CBC meetup to RESERVE YOUR SEAT TODAY.
Brew Talks CBC is sponsored by WestRock. Additional sponsorship opportunities are still available — please contact John McKenna to learn more.
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 gather at well-known industry meetings, such as the Craft Brewers Conference, to 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. At its 15 meetups in 2015 and 2016, Brewbound raised more than $28,000 for local non-profit organizations and connected with more than 2,000 beer industry professionals.
