Event description

Description

Join the Hampton Roads beer community for our second annual gathering as we organize for the future of the industry in our region. Representatives from local breweries, distributors, bottle shops, pubs, and restaurants as well as homebrewers and those who just love drinking great beer are invited to pool their knowledge to create new opportunties for our rapidly growing market.

The Brite Tank will be using an open source model, meaning participants will drive the conversations. This is a chance to share best practices, to get outside feedback, and to brainstorm new ideas. Proposed session topics already include opportunties to explore the possibility of standing Cicerone study groups, to consider new intersections with the tourist industry, and to experiment with ideas for festivals and collaborations. We're planning on having at least four conversations to choose from during each of our four break-out sessions. As you can see from our schedule, there will be plenty of opportunities for you to glean advice and to shape new endeavors with partners here in Hampton Roads:
