So what’s next? With 60+ breweries inside Seattle city limits, and 400+ in Washington state, where do we go from here? Is there room for more? Will the IPA bubble ever burst and what kind of beer will be the next big thing? And what kind of newfangled equipment and processes will brewers use to make it? These are just some of the things we will discuss at the upcoming Seattle Made Brewers’ Shoptalk.
Join me and five local brewers on Thursday, October 11th at Redhook Brewlab for a Seattle Made Brewers’ Shoptalk event, where I will moderate a panel discussion with some industry professionals who have their finger on the pulse of the city’s beer scene. Attendees will also have an opportunity to participate in a Q & A session.
The event takes place from 5:30 – 8:30, with the one-hour panel discussion from 6:30 – 7:30. Tickets are $15, which includes a pint of beer—one of Brewlab’s creations or a guest beer brewed by one of the panelists’ breweries.
The panel will discuss a range of topics with a focus on the future of beer and brewing. We’ll talk about sustainability and innovative brewing practices, new and emerging technology in the brew house, and other topics related to brewing the beer. We will also talk about the beer itself, discussing today’s most popular styles and forecasting what style we think will emerge as the next big thing.
