Brewing Beyond Local

In a world where "local" is increasingly important, how do breweries compete far from home? Satellite tasting rooms, bars and breweries are popping up like daisies, helping single-location businesses dig roots and creating new homes aboard. Victory is heading to South Carolina, Ballast Point to Chicago, Lagunitas to everywhere. Moreover, bigger breweries like Allagash are tapping into the brewery-only release game by selling limited-edition beers directly from the source.

On the flip side, some breweries rarely sell outside their home market, where their local community keeps them economically afloat. Want to buy their beer? You best pay them a visit.

BevCon brewers looking to expand distribution are highly encouraged to join this session. The tools to reach a remote drinking audience are powerful when used correctly, and they will all be covered here.
