The 38th edition of the Craft Brewers Conference and Brew Expo America has been rescheduled as an in-person event to be held in Denver on September 9-12, 2021. The annual conference and trade show was originally scheduled to take place in San Diego, March 29-April 1, 2021, but was cancelled due to the pandemic.
“Shifting to September in Denver provides us with an opportunity to convene in person, making it possible to do what brewers do best—build community through sharing our expertise and passion, and learn from each other,” Bob Pease, president and CEO, Brewers Association said in a statement.
In addition to the rescheduling of CBC, the Great American Beer Festival competition and awards ceremony, historically held in Denver, will also shift, with the awards announced during CBC on September 10. Details for the festival portion of GABF remain under review. A complete GABF competition timeline is available here.
Final confirmation of the in-person event remains dependent on health and safety protocols at the time of the conference. If an in-person event is not possible due to COVID-19 related concerns, the conference will move online. Registration for attendees and media is anticipated to open in April 2021.
