Part educational conference, part trade show, the New England Brew Summit is the premier regional craft beer industry B2B conference and will have something for everyone involved in the craft beer industry.

We will have all sessions and our vendor expo under one roof, maximizing the learning with breakout sessions categorized along two tracks: Technical Brewing, for brewers and production staff; and The Business of Beer, for owners, operators and business managers, as well as hospitality and front-of-house staff.

The 2023 New England Brew Summit will host brewers from around the Northeast to learn from one another while engaging in workshops and panel discussions on a variety of key brewing topics for both brewers and brewery owners, along with spending time networking within the vendor exhibition and over beers at sampling stations throughout the day.  

The theme of the 2023 NE Brew Summit will be 'Focus on What You Can Control' - and our agenda will be filled with talks and discussions that offer practical advice that brewery professionals can immediately implement in their own businesses. In a day filled with expert presenters, our featured presenters will be Bart Watson, Chief Economist for the Brewers Association, and Holly Haslam, HR Partner for the Brewers Association.

Thank you to our 2023 Presenting Sponsor: GHM Agency
