The WA Beer & Brewing Conference returns to Perth's Claremont Showgrounds this June, with another wide-ranging and high quality lineup of panels, workshops and presentations.
Presented by the WA Brewers Association in conjunction with Bintani and Cryer Malt, the conference has become an essential day in the calendar for those in the beer industry as well as those looking to get started in beer and brewing.
It takes place on June 9 and also includes a trade expo, designed to give attendees an opportunity to build relationships with local, national and international suppliers.
The Crafty Pint will be involved once again, although this time the panel presented in partnership with Cryer Malt is a little different. Instead of looking at getting a brewery up and running, in a reflection of the maturing market, we'll be joined by a diverse panel of experts (see below) to look at the pros and cons, and the challenges that can come with scaling up your brewery.
Elsewhere, speakers and industry leaders will host technical brewing workshops, sales and market insights, and plenty more, including a sensory session hosted by Glenn Harrison of Ellerslie Hops.
$95 for WA Brewers Association paid-up members | $110 non-members (plus booking fee)
Group discount for 7+ tickets for WABA members only.
