Brewbound will travel to Grand Rapids, Mich. next Tuesday, July 21, to host Brewing Talks, an education and networking meetup for beer industry professionals.
The event, which will be hosted inside of Founders Brewing Company’s Centennial Room, will feature a special 1-on-1 conversation with Founders co-founder and president, Dave Engbers.
Brewbound editor Chris Furnari will sit down with Engbers to discuss top-of-mind industry issues, including merger & acquisition activity and the session IPA trend, among other topics.
Brew Talks are social gatherings designed to provide industry professionals with engaging and thought-provoking discussions on the business of beer in craft friendly locales. The traveling meetups offer attendees an excellent opportunity to interact and network with other beverage industry entrepreneurs.
Local brewers, distributors and retailers are invited to join the Michigan meetup, being held at Founders Brewing (235 Grandville Ave SW, Grand Rapids, MI 49503), at 5:00 P.M. on Tuesday July 21. Panel discussions will begin promptly at 5:30 P.M. and guests are invited to imbibe and socialize until 8:00 P.M.
In addition to hosting conversations with local beer industry experts, Brewbound will also be raising funds for Grand Rapids Whitewater, a non-profit organization working to restore the Grand River. 100 percent of registration proceeds ($15/person) will be donated to Grand Rapids Whitewater.

About Brew Talks:
Since hosting our first event in the basement of a craft beer bar in Boston in 2013, the meetup series has developed into a multi-city tour where beer industry professionals can come together inside of some of the country’s most recognizable craft breweries and share business insights with one another.
The Brew Talks 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. The events are also broadcast globally via a free live stream.
Through its five meetups this year, Brewbound has connected with more than 650 beer industry professionals and raised over $7,200 for local non-profit organizations.
