Speakers: Sam Gilbert, Co-Owner, Temescal Brewing Co., Jen Coyle, Co-Owner, The Can Van, Taylor West, Co-Founder, Humble Sea Brewing Co., Jesse Pine, Managing Partner, Pure Project Brewing Co., Matthew Zirpolo, Co-Owner, Burgeon Beer Co.

The times are changing! Look closely at industry trends of the past few years—the proliferation of beer brands, the explosive growth of small breweries, the rise of hazy IPA, the changing demographics of craft beer drinkers—and weaving its way through it all, you’ll find a newly-fashionable packaging format: the 16oz can.

Sam Gilbert of Temescal Brewing will lead a panel of brewers and vendors at the heart of the recent small batch, one-off can craze in California. Together, they’ll explore the shift in demand towards cans, the culture and marketing of ‘hype cans’, the benefits and challenges of canning as a small brewery, and the future of the trend.
