BAA to Host Craft Beer Garden at NBWA Trade Show
Sept 2, 2003 - The Brewers Association of America will showcase 20 member breweries at the National Beer Wholesalers Association's 66th Annual Convention and Trade Show in Las Vegas, October 12 - 15, 2003. The breweries will be sampling their products on the trade show floor in the BAA sponsored Beer Garden.
"The NBWA Convention is simply the single best opportunity to promote small brewers to wholesalers," according to Daniel Bradford, BAA President. "On one side, small brewers looking to grow their market get unparalleled exposure, and on the other, wholesalers, who are always looking for new and exciting products, get a chance to actually sample new beers and talk with the brewery principals," said Bradford.
Over 3000 beer wholesalers and other industry members will be attending the conference, held every two years in Las Vegas. Alternating years rotate among various U.S. cities and do not include the trade show
The twenty participating breweries will be:
Alaskan Brewing & Bottling Co, Allagash Brewing Co., Anderson Valley Brewing Co., August Schell Brewing Co., Brooklyn Brewery, Coastal Extreme Brewing Co., Deschutes Brewery, Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, Flying Dog Brewery, Harpoon Brewery, Kalamazoo Brewing Co., Magic Hat Brewing Co., New Belgium Brewing Co.,ÊOdell Brewing Co., Portland Brewing Co., Stone Brewing Co., Stoudt's Brewing Co., Summit Brewing Co., Uinta Brewing Co. and Victory Brewing Co.
