This week, the city of Portland has become the epicenter of the craft brewing industry. Thousands of craft professionals and would-be beer entrepreneurs (more than 11,000) have descended on the Craft Brewers Conference and BrewExpo America at the Oregon Convention Center, attending seminars, exploring the tradeshow floor and mixing and mingling at events all over of the city. Of course, not everyone can attend, so on this post we’ve tried to capture a few images that show the feeling and energy of the 2015 event. And you can tell from some of these photos, folks are not only learning, but having a pretty good time, too. Enjoy.
