We were excited to kick start the Summit with a panel entitled “Sharing the Ingredients for Success”, which featured seasoned representatives from the malting barley supply chain, to include a malting barley grower, malt house operator, farm-brewer, and a consumer group representative. More details can be found on the conference program.
Following the panel discussion, we offered conference attendees a complimentary beer tasting and networking dinner. Local breweries and a distillery were onsite to offer samples of their beers and spirits, many of which will be brewed with NYS ingredients. Following the beer tasting, we offered a NYS inspired dinner menu.
