Conference Season 2017: Craft Brewers Conference & BrewExpo America

What's up everyone!

This past week, the FuseBox Radio Broadcast and family had the privilege of being able to cover a part of the 2017 Craft Brewers Conference & BrewExpo America held at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC.

As a craft beer lover, it was pretty cool to be able to go to this professional industry conference to literally see how the brews get made, from the various exhibitors on deck at the Convention Center (which included distributors, marketing folks, graphic artists, machinery, packaging companies and more), seminars going down, brewery tours in the DMV (the pictures below are from a brewery tour we went to in Fredrick, MD, which including Monocacy Brewing Co, Rockwell Brewery, Mad Science Brewing Company and Brewers Ally), go to networking events (in and out of the building, with a decent amount of them open to the public), presentations, special beer tastings and more.

Overall, this is an awesome & enjoyable educational event I think that should have a chance to be open to more than professionals, if at all possible even for just one day.

The one constructive critique I can give to the Craft Brewers Conference is that I would love to see at next year's event would be a bit more focus on how to get more American minorities involved on the business & media coverage side of craft beer. 

I did not see that much of that side of things during this year's conference and such a subject is going to be of extreme importance in the near future, especially with more and more that population in their mid-20s and above getting into enjoying it as a part of recreational drinking enjoyment, being interested in crafting their own beer, making review podcasts/websites/magazines about the diversity of craft beer and then some.
