A second panel discussion on diversity and inclusion within the beer industry will feature Brewers Association diversity ambassador Dr. J. Nikol Jackson-Beckham, Founders Brewing diversity and inclusion director Graci Harkema and Bow & Arrow Brewing founder and CEO Shyla Sheppard.
Throughout the event, which begins at 4:00 PM MDT, panelists will discuss the ways the craft beer category can evolve and open itself to new demographics.
