California Craft Beer Summit 2017Presented by California Craft Brewers Association
The three-day event starts as an industry trade show and ends at the largest California craft beer festival, hosted outdoors in front of the state Capitol and offering unlimited tastings from 160 breweries and more than 450 beers brewed across California. Tickets are available for the full weekend or just the beer festival.
The expo hall is organized around the four main ingredients in beer and offers “Tap Talks” with brewing legends, chef demos at the Culinary Marketplace, regional beer tastings hosted by craft beer guilds across the state, homebrewing demos and interactive, hands-on displays.
Educational sessions on Friday are focused on the brewing, business and hospitality industries and include everything from technical skills to branding to how to explain beer styles to your guests.
Educational sessions on Saturday are for the people that really drive the craft beer industry: craft beer drinkers! These sessions offer entry and advanced level homebrewing lessons, tasting, judging and pairing opportunities and a few, fun history lessons with colorful California brewers.
