Brew Talks 2015: San Diego and Chicago Venues Announced


Panelists discuss beer culture at Brew Talks Boston, where more than 130 attendees joined the conversation.

Brewbound is pleased to announce the next two stops on the 2015 Brew Talks nationwide tour.

Brew Talks — a free, traveling meetup series for beer industry professionals – will visit Coronado Brewing in San Diego, Calif. on Tuesday March 10 and Revolution Brewing in Chicago on Tuesday, April 28.

The Brew Talks meetup series 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. San Diego and Chicago events will offer attendees an excellent opportunity to gain business lessons and network with other beverage entrepreneurs.

Craft brewers, distributors and retailers in each market are invited to join Brewbound for a few pints and an evening of thought-provoking conversation. At both locations, doors will open at 5:00 P.M and panel discussions will begin promptly at 5:30 P.M (local time). Attendees are invited to imbibe and socialize until 8:00 P.M.


Along the way, Brewbound will also be raising money for two different charitable organizations. In San Diego, Brewbound has partnered with Coronado and a local supporter of the Susan G. Komen Foundation “Beer For Boobs.” Brewbound and Revolution Brewing will announce their charity selection in the coming weeks.

100 percent of the suggested admission proceeds ($10 – $100) will be donated to the selected charity in each city. Stay tuned for official speaker announcements, which will be made in the coming days.

Please Note:

  • Brew Talks San Diego will be held at Coronado’s production facility and tasting room (not the Coronado brewpub) which is located at 1205 Knoxville Street in San Diego, Calif.
  • Brew Talks Chicago will be held at Revolution’s “Kedzie” production facility (not the brewpub), which is located at 3340 N. Kedzie Ave. in Chicago, Ill.

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. In less than two years, we’ve hosted 19 meetups, in 15 U.S. cities, and connected with thousands of individuals from all tiers of the industry.
