Brew Talks Travels to Chicago on September 23

Brewbound is hitting the road once again, taking its traveling Brew Talks event series to Chicago for a meetup with beer industry professionals at the brand new Lagunitas Brewery taproom on Sept. 23.

Designed to provide brewers, distributors and retailers with an intimate opportunity to network and learn the business of beer in craft-friendly locales, Brew Talks Chicago will offer attendees two unique discussions on the marketing and distribution strategies of successful craft brands.

In addition to hosting conversations with local beer industry experts, Brewbound will also be raising funds for Foundations of Music, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing music education programs to students in the Chicago Public Schools system. 100 percent of the suggested contribution proceeds ($10 – $100) will be donated to Foundations of Music.

Stay tuned for official speaker announcements, which will be made in the coming days.

Earlier this summer, Brewbound completed a four-city west coast tour that made stops in Portland, Ore., Sacramento, Calif., Los Angeles and San Diego and raised over $4,000 for Safe Water International.

Brew Talks is sponsored by Owens-Illinois, the world’s leading glass container manufacturer.
