Craft Brewers Conference 2021 – Beer Station Sponsor – Lallemand Brewing & Siebel Institute of Technology

Craft Brewers Conference 2021 –  Beer Station Sponsor – Lallemand Brewing & Siebel Institute of Technology

There are few meetings and events that bring our team members together in person, one such event being the annual Craft Brewers Conference.  We are thrilled to be (safely) gathering this year in Denver, CO, USA for CBC and the Craft Brewers Expo. We will be showcasing not only Lallemand Brewing Yeast and Bacteria but also our AB Vickers products and our courses and programs offered by the Siebel Institute of Technology.  Are you attending this year? If so, here are some ways to catch us while in Denver, including our trade show booth with a beer station (pouring beers made with our yeast and bacteria), our educational seminar, as well as two off-site events. Do you have questions about how we are working to keep you safe while in attendance?  We have outlined a few ways below as well for peace of mind.

Attend our Seminar

Two of our team members have collaborated on a presentation they will give together at CBC this year: Brewing Additions: Using Nutritients, Enzymes, and Process Aids to Solve Common Brewing Problems

Friday September 10, Mile High Ballroom 1

In this lecture, we discuss different approaches that can be used to resolve specific brewing challenges, including serial repitching, slow fermentation/underattenuation, off flavors, low flocculation, and high sugar/high adjunct brewing. By using a targeted approach, this will ensure that the brewer is using the right addition for the job.

About our speakers:

Our Efforts to Keep You Safe

While we are very excited to see attendees face to face this year, we understand that can come with some caution to limit exposure and keep everyone healthy.  Outside of the BA’s rules, we have decided on some precautions we will be taking to ensure the safety of those who visit our booth.

In addition to being masked at all times while on the trade show floor, we will be limiting the handout of printed materials to minimize hand to hand contact. Instead, we will implement the use of a digital station for sharing documents which will include Siebel Institute course offerings, our Lallemand Brewing Catalog, Technical Data Sheets and several of our best practice documents. We will have hand sanitizer at each tablet station, and our staff will be wiping down the tablets after each use.  Our team is fully vaccinated against Covid-19 and will be ensuring we each receive a negative test before entering the trade show floor.

We will see you there!

Visiting face to face with breweries and distributors is a major part what we do in keeping with our promise of We Brew With You™. While enjoying visiting breweries and being on the field, we have missed meeting at events and feeling this beautiful sense of community, unique to the brewing industry, as we are sure many of you have. We are looking forward to seeing you at the Conference and hopefully sharing a beer with you at the trade show booth! Our team is excited to bring some education to the table with our seminar and provide spaces and times to relax at our off-site events.

We will see you in Denver!
