What is The Craft Beer Summit?

The Summit is the most important event of the year for anyone who loves tasting beer or is interested in building their business in the craft beer industry.

The three-day event starts with hands-on education, tastings, pairings, interactive exhibits and networking opportunities and ends at the LARGEST California craft beer festival, hosted outdoors on the water in Long Beach, offering unlimited tastings from 170 breweries from across California.

I’m industry, why should I attend?

Attendees at the Summit can learn from experts on a variety of topics including research and development, market testing and trends, regulatory issues, brewing, tasting and distributing.

The hands-on expo and educational sessions will connect you with the leaders in brewing and provide an opportunity to talk to vendors and providers conducting business in the craft beer industry.
