By now I hope all professional brewers in Washington are aware of the upcoming Washington Craft Beer Summit taking place in Puyallup on November 7th thru 9th. The event features educational seminars on business and compliance, marketing, technical brewing, and front of house hospitality. All geared specifically toward Washington breweries.
I will actually be involved in one of the break-out sessions. Along with my panel of experts, who know a lot more than me, I hope to give you some insight into marketing and promoting your brewery and beers with little or no budget.
In addition to the educational breakouts, the Summit also features a trade show and two industry receptions. You can learn more on the official website, but for now, be aware that early bird ticket prices end on September 30th.
Here are some highlights for your consideration.
