What is The Craft Beer Summit?

PLEASE NOTE: As part of the CCBA’s commitment to the safety and protection of the craft beer community, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 CA Craft Beer Summit, scheduled for Long Beach, Calif., September 9-12.

The Summit is the most important event of the year for anyone who loves tasting beer or is interested in building their business in the craft beer industry.

The event starts with hands-on education, tastings, pairings, interactive exhibits and networking opportunities and ends at the LARGEST California craft beer festival, hosted outdoors, offering unlimited tastings from 180 breweries from across California.

I’m industry, why should I attend?

Attendees at the Summit can learn from experts on a variety of topics including research and development, market testing and trends, regulatory issues, brewing, tasting and distributing.

The hands-on expo and educational sessions will connect you with the leaders in brewing and provide an opportunity to talk to vendors and providers conducting business in the craft beer industry.


I’m a beer lover, why should I attend?

The largest craft beer festival on the West Coast brings together more than 180 breweries from across the state of California. Brewers from across the state are all in town to pour their special releases and hard to find beers from across California.
