North Carolina’s largest craft brewing industry event returns to Winston-Salem in 2017, bigger and better than ever.
For the first time, ABS Commercial will serve as the Presenting Sponsor of the NC Craft Brewers Conference, the Guild’s premier annual event. ABS Commercial is a supplier of professional brewing equipment that serves craft breweries all over the US from its headquarters in Raleigh and Denver CO sales office.
“ABS Commercial is really proud to be stepping up as the Presenting Sponsor of this conference,” said Kristie Nystedt, owner and CEO of ABS Commercial. “North Carolina craft brewing is what we’re all about. The Guild and its annual conference really embodies the togetherness and professionalism that make our industry great.”
“I’m really pleased the NC CBC landed in our hometown” said Jamie Bartholomaus, President and Co-Owner of Foothills Brewing and Vice-President of the Guild. “We look forward to participating in this event every year because all our friends from North Carolina and the southeast will come see us in Winston for the conference.”
In 2016 more than 600 craft brewing industry members attended the NC Craft Brewers Conference, which continues to grow significantly each year since its inaugural in 2014. The event features a half-day pre-conference focused on start-ups and expansions, and a two full days of workshops, panels, parties and trade show.
Speakers will be announced on a rolling basis – watch for a Call for Proposals in May 2017. Sponsorships are also available to affiliate members of the NC Craft Brewers Guild – contact us for more information.
