The 8th annual Montana Brewers Conference is exactly two months away. Register today and get the early bird discount!

The Details

The conference will run from September 12 – 13 at the Holiday Inn (200 S Pattee St.) in Missoula and feature technical and educational sessions, panel discussions, a trade show, and opportunities to network with individuals from across the craft beer industry. Join us as we explore crafting Montana’s beer future!

We’re so excited for these three days of learning, sharing and networking… and, of course, enjoying some great Montana craft beer. We’re pleased to announce that Stan Heironymous will be our keynote speaker for the conference. Stan is a lifelong journalist who has been writing about all facets of beer and brewing for the past 26 years.

We also have some great sessions in the works, including a panel on the Department of Labor’s apprenticeship program, an off-flavor tasting, and talks on hops and yeast. And for those arriving on Wednesday evening, we’ll be throwing axes and drinking beer at Lumberjaxe Throwing Co. You won’t want to miss it! Learn more and register at the conference website.

Plus, MBA members receive a discounted rate for registration and there’s a discounted rate for each additional registration for an organization.
