BrewExpo is a terrific opportunity for professionals to explore the newest products and services that the industry has to offer…It’s also a great place to talk the biz with friends in a more relaxed setting.

First launched in Boulder Colorado in 1996, the Craft Brewers Conference has grown exponentially in both scope and scale…And its 35th annual gathering in Nashville will showcase more than 70 seminars and an impressive lineup of industry voices, across 12 different educational tracks.
