America’s craft brewing industry is on the rise and is drastically changing the way Americans drink. The past few years have witnessed unprecedented industry growth and most experts expect the good times to continue for many more years. With so much growth and change, industry personnel have to be on top of their game; crafting new and unique products, scheduling social events, managing employees, and promoting through traditional means and social media. One event that brings industry personnel and experts together for several days of malt beverage knowledge sharing is the Craft Brewer’s Conference and Brew Expo America, an event scheduled for April 14 through April 17, 2015 in Portland, Oregon.
What You Can Expect
The Craft Brewer’s Conference is sponsored by the Brewer’s Association and it’s the only event of its kind that caters to both brewpubs and packaging breweries. The conference will be held in the Oregon Convention Center and will feature individual seminars that focus on such specific industry topics as:
- Beer Labels 101
- How to Build a Brewery
- From Craftsman to Designer Through Taste Innovation
- Best Practices in Brewery Date Coding
- Crafting Glassware for Craft Beer
- Effective Ways to Tell Your Brewery’s Story
The above is just a small sample of the helpful industry knowledge just waiting to be shared at the Craft Brewer’s Conference. Attendees can select and attend the seminars and/or demonstrations most pertinent to their individual needs before stopping at one of several hospitality suites scheduled throughout the afternoon and early evening. And each late evening will include top- notch events sponsored by such industry notables as Lagunitas Brewing, Crosby Hop Farm, and Oskar Blues Brewing.

The seminars and speakers are reason enough to attend the Craft Brewer’s Conference, but there’s more. This event also showcases more than 500 vendors demonstrating selling industry- related products and services. Few, if any, conferences in the United States bring together so many beer industry vendors in a single place. It makes the perfect place for brewery and brewpub owners to look for products and services that could provide the competitive edge needed for today’s growing market.
