Brewers Lectures LIVE 2020

to
The Brewers Lectures give a platform to speakers to inspire change, generate discussion & share brewing expertise.  The theme for this year's edition: Disrupting The Status Quo, is inspired by unprecedented times that have forced the brewing industry to pivot rapidly.  The event will provide a necessary platform to our speakers to discuss forward-focused topics surrounding 3 Key Pillars: Tech, Innovation, and Diversity. 

In order to humanize our Virtual Events as much as possible, we have teamed up with Hopin; our virtual venue and event platform — for the ultimate experience in learning, networking, and leads generations.
