This is our first hybrid meeting with the in-person session taking place at the Marriott (Berliner Str. 93, 80805 Munich). See registration info below.

What’s happening on the German beer market today and what is the outlook for the near future? Our unique panel of brewing experts will explore the German beer market from their various perspectives: What about changing tastes in beer, craft beers entering the market, encroachment by wine and spirits, the pandemic lockdown, and brewing supply chains? All this and more will be part of our October Monthly Meeting. If you are just a friend or even a lover of the amber fluid, this discussion is not to be missed!
