A daylong education and outreach conference for IBG members as well as the general public, i-BEST (Iowa Brewers Education Seminar and Tippling) is packed with useful brewing and beer business information.
The 2019 conference will be hosted by Exile Brewing Company in Des Moines, Iowa on November 1-2.
I-BEST has something for everyone. For those already in the craft brewing industry, content addresses issues on technical brewing as well as business and marketing. Homebrewers looking to improve their skills will find helpful information, and those planning a brewery or looking to transition into the industry will also benefit. Breakout sessions allow attendees to chose among seminars in three tracks: business/marketing, legal, and technical brewing.
Along with seminars on scaling up pilot recipes, self-distribution strategies, taproom service, protecting trade secrets, and more, the 2019 keynote addresses will be delivered by historian Maureen Ogle and industry veteran Ann Fahy.
In addition to a full day of beer and brewing education, i-BEST includes morning refreshments, lunch, an industry trade show, networking with IBG associate/retail members & sponsors, and tippling.
REGISTRATION OPENS SEPTEMBER 2 HERE.
