Presented by the Brewers Association, the Craft Brewers Conference® (CBC) is the largest industry gathering in the U.S. for concentrated, affordable brewing education, and idea sharing to improve brewery quality and performance. The conference brings together professionals across the industry for educational seminars and workshops led by the top minds in the beer world and access to BrewExpo America®, the largest brewing trade show in the U.S.
