The Brewers Association (BA) — the not-for-profit trade association dedicated to small and independent American craft brewers (by its definition) — today announced the launch of a weekly webinar series titled the BA Collab Hour. The weekly webinar series, available exclusively to Brewers Association members, will kick off today via Crowdcast on BrewersAssocation.org.
BA Collab Hour is a reimagined and rebranded BA Power Hour, the BA’s popular monthly teleconference series, that builds on the recent success of CBC Online and HBC Online — virtual versions of the BA’s Craft Brewers Conference and Homebrew Con, respectfully. The BA Collab Hour sessions will feature guest speakers and cover topics such as technical aspects of brewing, statistics and data and more. New webinars will be presented live every Thursday at 11:00 a.m. Mountain Standard Time. Replays will be available on the Brewers Association website.
“The Brewers Association is producing more content than ever, and we’re excited to provide some of that content to members in this new format each week,” said Paul Gatza, senior vice president of professional brewing division, Brewers Association.
