Trevor Rose-Hamblin, Head Brewer and Co-Founder of Old Irving Brewing Co in Chicago, IL will join us as the fourth annual NH Craft Brew Conference & Tradeshow Keynote speaker.

His constant efforts to give back and help to de-stigmatize the conversation about mental health in our community are ever-present. During his address, he will speak about his deeply personal encounter with the matter as well as his professional efforts to support the industry he holds near and dear.

“We understand that the more we talk about mental health, the more we realize we are not crazy, messed up, or insane. We are human beings going through a thing called life and if we need help, it starts with understanding that IT’S OK NOT TO BE OK.”

In 2019, he partnered with Hope for the Day to release Hops for Hope, as part of Mental Health Awareness Month. Further, his work with the organization did not stop there, he is one of the lead educators for the 86 the Silence mental health education, geared toward preventing suicides in the food and beverage industry.

Trevor brings over 15 years of brewing experience and has not only graduated from Kendall College of Culinary Arts but worked for years as a Chef and GM in some of Chicago’s top restaurants... and let's not forget his beer has won gold at GABF.
