The fourth annual New Hampshire Craft Brew Conference & Tradeshow brings together individuals seeking to learn, develop and explore their passion for craft beer.
NHCBC is curated for independent craft brewers, by independent craft brewers and provides an invaluable opportunity for brewers to learn from one another and discuss their needs. The event is also designed to be relevant to everyone working at breweries or in the craft brewing and hospitality industry — whether in brewing, sales, beertending, front of the house, operations, buyers, suppliers, or marketing.
As part of NHCBC, attendees will be able to interact with a variety of industry partners, as well as participate in a full day of educational sessions in three tracks: technical brewing, business leadership/operations, and hospitality. You'll have the opportunity to speak with fellow brewers and industry professionals and attend a full vendor exhibition and tradeshow.
The NH Craft Brew Conference & Tradeshow will feature dozens of sponsors and industry partners on exhibit for the duration of the event — check back for our list of participating vendors soon!
In addition, attendees will enjoy a continental breakfast, luncheon, light refreshments throughout the event, and a "Hoppy" Hour celebration with several NH beers on tap (21+plus**) to round out the conference.
**Please note anyone sampling beer during the event will be subject to an ID check. Please bring a valid ID to the conference if you plan to partake.
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.
