    WHAT:

    CBC 2014 also serves as home to the World Beer Cup® (WBC), often referred to as “The Olympics of Beer Competition.” As the world’s largest global beer competition, WBC creates greater awareness about different beer styles and flavors while promoting international brewing excellence. Every two years, a highly qualified professional panel of beer judges—about 70 percent of whom hail from outside the U.S.—honors the top three beers in 91 categories with gold, silver and bronze awards. Several first time countries will be represented on the 2014 judge panel, including Spain, China and Taiwan.

     
     

    WHO:

    An estimated 7,000 attendees will have the opportunity to visit with over 400 exhibiting companies and hear from more than 145 presenters, including CBC keynote speaker, bestselling author, food advocate and activist Michael Pollan.

     

    WHY:

    Craft breweries are a vibrant and flourishing economic force at the local, state and national level with more than 2,700 breweries operating in the U.S., pouring $33.9 billion into the economy in 2012. With the innovation and full flavor that craft brewed beers offer, there continues to be an increased demand in the marketplace for small and independent brewers. CBC provides an environment for new and established members of the craft brewing community to connect, share ideas and learn about the growing industry.
