A daylong education and outreach conference for IBG members as well as the general public, i-BEST (Iowa Brewers Education Seminar and Tippling) is packed with useful brewing and beer business information.

The 2017 conference will be hosted by Worth Brewing Company in Northwood, Iowa on Nov. 4.

I-BEST has something for everyone. For those already in the craft brewing industry, content addresses issues on technical brewing as well as business and marketing. Homebrewers looking to improve their skills will find helpful information, and those planning a brewery or looking to transition into the industry will also benefit. Breakout sessions allow attendees to chose among seminars in three tracks: business/marketing, legal, and technical brewing.

Along with seminars on brewery insurance, preventive maintenance, barrel aging, legal issues, photography, and more, the 2017 closing keynote address will be delivered by Rebecca Newman of Summit Brewing Company.

In addition to a full day of beer and brewing education, i-BEST includes morning refreshments, lunch, networking with IBG associate/retail members & sponsors, and tippling.
