Local experts lined up for Business of Beer symposium
The Central Penn Business Journal is hosting a half-day symposium on the business of beer to highlight the growth and needs of the craft brewery market.
• Brandalynn Armstrong, Zeroday Brewing Co., based in Harrisburg
• Jason Mininger, Aldus Brewing Co., based in Hanover
• Jon Norman, Funk Brewing, based in Emmaus (Lehigh County) with an Elizabethtown location
• Artie Tafoya, Appalachian Brewing Co., based in Harrisburg
The keynote address will be given by Chris Lampe, co-owner and production manager at Weyerbacher Brewing Co., based in Easton, Northampton County.
This is the first-of-its kind event to be hosted by the Business Journal. We figured you might have a few questions.
What is the Business of Beer?
The Business of Beer symposium targets those interested in the brewing industry. It's geared toward the business investor, the craft-beer hobbyist or someone ready to take their beer-brewing business to the next level.
Why should I attend?
Personal connection. Sure, you can discover everything you need to know about beer from the internet, but that won't replace the in-person contacts you can make in the industry. We have asked local midstate leaders to share their insight and experiences.
Will there be beer tasting?
Yes. But this is not a brewfest. This symposium is a chance to go beyond craft brewing and tasting. It's purpose is to connect business leaders to others in the industry. Retail competition can be fierce. This half-day afternoon of learning can put you at an advantage.
