Over 13,300 attendees and 440 exhibiting companies were in Washington D.C. April 10-13, 2017 for the Craft Brewers Conference & BrewExpo America. This record setting gathering for the brewing, distilling, and winemaking industries took over two levels in the Walter E. Washington Convention Center.
The Expo also featured the Brewers Association Director, Paul Gatza and Chief Economist Bart Watson who gave their insights on the future of the craft beer industry at large. There is no doubt that the craft beer industry has seen incredibly rapid growth that features a highly competitive market, yet one of the tightest knit business communities on the planet.
