It’s Monday. We’re collectively slouched in a random corner on Level 3 of the Music City Center (Nashville’s expansive convention complex). We’re surrounded by empty exhibitor booths, trapped by a collection of tiny taster cups that have walled us into a corner. Last week, we spent three days canvassing the Craft Brewers Conference and BrewEXPO America in Tennessee, researching the latest equipment, sifting through the freshest ingredients and discussing the American craft brewing industry with the nation’s biggest and smallest brewhouses.
Now, everyone is gone, and we’re just sitting here on the floor. The quiet is nice. We’ve already done exactly one zillion stories on CBC this whole month and last, and we’ll continue that coverage over the next month-plus as we delve into the hot topics we’ve discovered. Right now, we’re just trying to find the will to stand and go home. Till then, enjoy some sights from the 2018 CBC. We took a lot of photos.
