Craft Beverage Expo (CBExpo) will return for its fourth annual conference in Portland, OR Nov. 7-9, 2017 at the DoubleTree by Hilton. It’s the first time the conference will be held outside of Northern California.
Each year, CBExpo attracts professionals from across the craft beer, wine, cider, mead and spirits market for three days of ducation sessions and presentations from hand-chosen experts. CBExpo also offers networking opportunities, bringing together artisan beverage masters from all segments to connect and collaborate.
Hey, on Monday, Sept. 21, I’ll be live on the internet radio show The Hospitality Industry News Network with Steven Nicolle on Voiceamerica, talking about my upcoming book, The Year of Drinking Adventurously (Turner Publishing).

The Empire State has become one of the premier destinations for artisanal beer, wine, spirits and cider. But you won’t have to trek throughout all of Upstate New York to try the best its beverage makers have to offer. The state’s craft beverage producers will have their chance to shine at Cheers NY, a weekend-long celebration of New York State-made craft beverages and Brooklyn, N.Y.-made food.
The Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce and the State of New York—through Empire State Development Corp. and the Taste NY state food and drink promotion initiative—teamed up to sponsor the event, which will feature two tasting sessions on Saturday, Oct. 3 (12 p.m. to 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.) and one on Sunday, Oct. 4 (12 p.m. to 3 p.m.).
