Meet the Brewer

Meet the Brewer Pavilion

Each year, the Great American Beer Festival dedicates roughly 30,000 square feet of hall space to a section called Meet the Brewer, wherein each brewery’s booth is staffed entirely, exclusively, by their employees. Want to strike up a conversation with your brewing hero? Head over to Meet the Brewer and meet the men and women behind America’s craft brewing renaissance!

“Ever since the first festival, in 1982, one of the best things about GABF has been the personal interactions attendees have with their craft brewing heroes, and Meet the Brewer builds on that long tradition,” says Nancy Johnson, event director at the Brewers Association. “Meet the Brewer is another great opportunity for passionate beer fans to start conversations with brewers, learn more about their beers and talk shop.”
