Let’s Meet for a Beer guests include brewery owners, brew masters, master chefs, entrepreneurs & other affiliates of the craft beverage industry. The conversations are both micro and macro- ranging from the challenges that it took to build their business, to the future of the craft industry and more!

All conversations are had over a beer or two, hence the name… Let’s Meer for a Beer!
