Brewbound today announced its speaker lineup for the upcoming Brew Talks meetup, taking place September 21, in Denver, Colorado, during the Great American Beer Festival.
The industry-only event, presented by Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, will feature panel discussions on the state of the beer industry.
Joining a conversation that will explore innovation in the brewing business will be Monday Night Brewing co-founder Jeff Heck, The Bruery co-founder Patrick Rue, and Calicraft Brewing founder Blaine Landberg.
A second panel discussion that will examine nationwide beer industry trends and challenges will feature Dogfish Head founder and CEO Sam Calagione, Canarchy Craft Brewery Collective president Matt Fraser, and Revolution Brewing chief commercial officer Donn Bichsel.
Throughout the three-hour event, which begins at 12:00 PM (MDT), panelists will discuss topics such as direct-to-consumer sales, emerging beer styles, continued brewery proliferation, wholesaler consolidation, emerging growth opportunities, and industry headwinds.
Brew Talks GABF will give brewers, distributors, and retailers who are already attending the country’s largest beer festival an opportunity to come together and take part in honest conversations about the beer industry.
