Brewbound is pleased to announce that Brew Talks — a traveling meetup series for beer industry professionals — will make its next stop at Boulevard Brewing in Kansas City on May 18.
Beer business professionals are invited to join the Kansas City meetup, being held inside of the Muehlebach Suite at the Boulevard Brewing’s production brewery (2501 Southwest Blvd, Kansas City, MO 64108), at 5:00 P.M. on Monday May 18. Panel discussions will begin promptly at 5:30 P.M. and guests are invite to imbibe and socialize until 8:00 P.M.
Brew Talks — gatherings designed to provide craft brewers, distributors and retailers the opportunity to come together and have in-depth discussions on the business side of craft beer – will offer attendees an excellent opportunity to gain business lessons and network with other beverage entrepreneurs.
In Kansas City, Brew Talks attendees will hear from Simon Thorpe, the president of Duvel Moortgat USA; Jon Poteet, the vice president of marketing at Central States Beverage; and three of Kansas City’s newest craft brewery startups.
In addition to hosting conversations with industry experts, Brewbound will also be raising money for The Animal Rescue Alliance (TARA), an all-volunteer organization dedicated to helping homeless pets in the Great Kansas City area. 100 percent of the admission sales will be donated to TARA.
Over the last three months, Brewbound has connected with more than 600 beer industry professionals, in four different cities and raised over $6,000 for local non-profit organizations.
After Kansas City, Brew Talks will make its next stop in Michigan in July. Stay tuned for additional announcements, including the official dates and locations of our four remaining 2015 Brew Talks meetups.
