We’re in flight right now to Denver — via zeppelin, of course — and we’re excited about our plans at the Craft Brewers Conference and BrewExpo America this week. We’ll be examining new brewhouse tech, rubbing hops, sitting down with marketers, raising our hands in seminars, making new friends, confronting old enemies and grabbing lots of beers in between. But maybe the biggest mark we must check will be a visit to the Crosby Hop Farm lounge.
Why, you ask?
Simple math: The Crosby Hop Farm lounge will be serving 18 unique, brewed-for-the show collaborations from 36 breweries from 15 countries. Each new beer is the result of an international pairing featuring one U.S. brewer and one brewer from around the world. These brews all of course use wonderful Willamette Valley-grown Crosby hops. From the farmers:
These beers encapsulate the creative ideas, ingredients and brewing styles from some of the best breweries on the planet. Join us in our 2019 seminar-level beer lounge (1B) to sample world-class collaboration beers, experience hop harvest in 360 degrees and touch and smell the finest hops on the planet.
See it all in the video above. Then go drink some of those beers.
