Future of Beer Seminar at Ben’s Bottle Shop

This Monday, September 9th, 7-9pm, the first ever North Bank Beer Week seminar series kicks off with a discussion on the Future of Beer. Similar to the Portland Beer Week seminar series, this features a panel of industry pros and will be moderated by yours truly. In addition to the talk, there will be a bunch of rare Great Notion Brewing beers on tap! Reserve your seats now.

The Future of Beer Seminar addresses issues pertinent to the craft beer industry, such as: How do you compete with hard seltzer? Are younger drinkers abandoning craft beer for other adult beverages? How do breweries and taprooms stand out in a crowded marketplace? How important is sustainability, innovation and chasing trends? How will the beer scene in Portland and the Northbank Brewers Alliance evolve in the coming years?

These quandaries and more will be discussed and explored by the panelists:

Paul Reiter of Great Notion Brewing
Justin Leigh of Dwinell Country Ales
Jason Bos of Brothers Cascadia Brewing
Ethan Louis Edwards of Ben’s Bottle Shop
Herb Apon of Mikkeller Bar Pop Up Portland

Tickets include seating in the banquet room for the panel as well as a taster tray of each panelist’s selected “future beer” plus a few surprises! Tickets are $20 in advance. Any remaining tickets will be $25 at the door. Limit: 40 tickets.

Ben’s Bottle Shop, 8052 E Mill Plain Blvd #2002, Vancouver, WA 98664

Arrangements for this world-class presentation have been made by The Caputo Group, Ben’s Bottle Shop and ZZeppelin.
