THE PREMIER GATHERING OF THE NEW YORK STATE CRAFT BREWING INDUSTRY
FEBRUARY 22ND – MARCH 5TH
The NY Craft Brewers Conference is the fastest growing state-level brewers conference in the country. In 2020, what would have been the 3rd annual, more than 500 attendees were expected. Many generous sponsors have stood by NY during this difficult time. It is because of them that the Conference is free for all employees of NYSBA member breweries. With 40+ sessions spread out over 2 weeks, Brewery owners to Bartenders and Brewers to Marketers will find information to more smoothly transition out pandemic times.
