The 2010 Craft Brewers Conference (CBC) and BrewExpo America started Tuesday and runs until April 10. I didn’t know that it was in downtown Chicago until we got here. Rep. Pete DeFazio and Rep. Richie Neal (from Western Massachusetts) were the keynote speakers. They are both part of the Small Brewers Caucus which I discussed here.
The conference is primarily a trade meeting, but there are some events connected to it for the public. Tonight I could have gone and seen Fritz Maytag in another part of town but I didn’t. On Friday and Saturday Stone Brewing will be taking over eleven taps at a taqueria. I am going to try to go to that.
