Every year, prior to the annual Craft Brewers Conference & BrewEXPO America, we ask exhibitors to tell us what will be at their booth to preview the show. Below is one such preview. For all of our CBC coverage this year, search #CBC2016 or click this link. See you in Philly.
Grandstand Glassware & Apparel, leaders in custom print glassware, apparel and promotional merchandise since 1988, have a ton planned, as usual, for the Craft Brewers Conference, taking place this week in Philadelphia. Let us count the ways.
First, Grandstand will have an expanded booth (#1427) that features a diverse selection of new and classic U.S. and European craft beer glassware, from samplers to growlers, as well as trending apparel and promo merch. It is a must-see booth if for no other reason than to keep up with the trends.
But those who stop by will be rewarded. Be sure to ask about their special Swag Bags that feature new merchandise across all lines that will be on display, including the new, Grandstand-exclusive Revival glasses — European designed glasses that are stackable, concentrate aromatics, help with proper head retention and have nucleation options (while supplies last).
Grandstand will also shine a light on their Creative Services — including having several Grandstand graphic designers on hand at the Expo. Other staff at the booth will include the sales team, research and development, as well as management and marketing.
In addition, Grandstand’s trademarked Support Local Beer initiative will be seen across the city’s bars through special “Philly Edition” Support Local Beer t-shirts and limited edition Philly Revival glasses. The following bars and breweries will be serving these up: Bottle Bar East, Standard Tap, Crime and Punishment, BarLy, Jose Pistola’s, Time, URBAHN, U-BAHN, Monk’s Café and more.
On May 3, Grandstand and Varga Bar will present an industry cruise on the Delaware River.
On May 5, Grandstand has also partnered with Victory Brewing for the 2016 Amber Waves art and craft beer event from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at National Museum of Jewish American History. This annual event is a celebration of art as well as craft beers. Beers from over 25 craft breweries, limited only by one Amber hue, will be shared while artwork commissioned from each brewery will be auctioned off to benefit the City of Philadelphia’s Mural Arts Program.
