Craft Beer’s most important industry gathering, the Craft Brewers Conference & BrewExpo America® is returning to Nashville next week. And If you’re in the craft beer biz, have friends in the industry, or hope to work in it yourself one day, you need to be there.
Presented by the Brewers Association, the Craft Brewers Conference (CBC) is the world’s largest beer and brewing event and it can attract over 13,000 brewing professionals and some of the biggest names in the biz.
The CBC is held in different cities annually. Last year it touched down in Minneapolis. And in 2023 it’s returning to Nashville (May 7-10) for four days of enlightening industry talk and SERIOUS fun.
First launched in Boulder, Colorado in 1996, the Craft Brewers Conference has grown massively in scope and scale…The 2023 CBC will showcase more than 70 seminars and a vast array of industry voices, across nine different educational tracks.
CBC 2023 will also present BrewExpo America, the nation’s leading trade show for craft brewers featuring hundreds of exhibitors and a great opportunity for professionals to explore the newest products and services that the industry has to offer.
The Craft Brewers Conference will conclude in Nashville on May 10 with the awards ceremony for the 2023 World Beer Cup, the biggest and most prestigious beer competition in the world—coined the “Olympics of beer.”
Developed in 1996 to celebrate the art and science of brewing, the now annual competition continues to generate global awareness about different beer styles and flavor profiles while promoting international brewing excellence.
This year’s competition is expected to be unforgiving, as craft brewing continues to attract an even broader universe around the globe.
And with the CBC returning to Nashville, Tennessee (home to legendary country music venues like the Grand Ole Opry House and the Country Music Hall of Fame), this year’s Craft Brewers Conference promises to be one for the books!
The American Craft Beer crew had too much fun when the CBC debuted in Nashville back in 2018 and we’re looking forward to connecting with all of you again next week down in Music City.
