The Business of Beer: Panel and Tasting

July 14, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Dream of starting your own brewery? Have a hobby you’d like to turn into a business? Or do you just LOVE BEER?
Boston’s craft beer scene is bubbling! Local companies are disrupting the industry and creating unique experiences, flavors, and combinations that rival the oldest brands.
On Thursday, July 14th, Branchfood is teaming up with General Assembly to chat about the business of brewing and understand the past, present, and future of the Boston beer scene. Join us for a panel of beer experts from local breweries – large, small, and in between – who will tell us how they got started, where they found funding, and how they brew, market, package, sell, and distribute their product.
Come thirsty and hungry! We’ll have a full beer tasting and burritos from Chipotle (included in the price of the ticket). See below for more details.
