That would make for a good panel discussion. I reckon Stuart Howe of Molson Coors craft division (technically in charge of Fran well) would be ideal.

Yes, a couple brewers (one established, one up and coming), a beer blogger and someone like Dean McGuinness to round out the panel.

Hi Marie, welcome to Beoir.

I attended the event last year and I thought the presentations were generally very good. It was also a great networking event. So far, based on the information available about this years event, I doubt I will be attending. The presentations and speakers listed don't seem to offer the variety of last years conference. As the owner of a new startup brewery, I would rather see more technical brewing sessions, and maybe some sessions on management operations and the day to day running of a craft brewery, from those who are doing it. Sensory sessions are simply not a big enough draw for me.

FWIW, I don't feel that this years event has been very well sold or promoted.
