About the talk
Independent brewers, over the last decade, have gone from an outlier, or a curio in the drinks market to a driving force in trends, flavour and discussion in the hospitality industry. It’s sitting beside wine and cocktails on high end restaurant lists, in bottle shops around the country, and small brewers are popping up in every town and suburb with their taprooms and brewpubs becoming destinations, and meeting points for the community.
Kylie Lethbridge, IBA Chief Executive Officer, will show you how and why it has become ingrained in daily lives, where the next trends are going, and how your business can capitalise on the amazing products being made by Australia’s outstanding independent brewers.
We will also give you an insight into how the Independent Brewers Association is continuing to support this growth, with sales and marketing support, advocacy, mental health resources, and how the last two years have changed how our members operate.
