Boulder, Colo. • October 15, 2019 — The Brewers Association, the not-for-profit trade association dedicated to small and independent American brewers, and the Deputy Chief of Mission of the Embassy of the United States of America in Berlin, Robin S. Quinville, will host an American craft beer pairing dinner at the diplomat’s residence on October 21. The dinner will take place during Berlin Food Week to highlight the innovation, creativity, and diversity of small and independent American craft brewers.
The menu, designed and curated by Adam Dulye, executive chef of the Brewers Association, and Ben Pommer, head of culinary at Berlin’s BRLO Brwhouse, will showcase the latest trends in craft beer and food in the U.S. and Europe. Guests will include members of the United States Embassy, European trade, media, and three industry luminaries from some of America’s most prominent breweries:
- Jennifer Glanville, Brewer and Director of Partnerships, Boston Beer Company
- Steve Grossman, Beer Ambassador, Sierra Nevada Brewing Company
- Matthew Brynildson, Brewmaster and Partner, Firestone Walker Brewing Company
The Berlin dinner is part of the Brewers Association’s Export Development Program, which is funded by grants from the United States Department of Agriculture and works to inform member breweries about opportunities to sell and promote products in key international markets. Additionally, the program focuses on educating international trade and media about proper storage and care for craft beer as well as the collective quality and diversity of styles created by small and independent American craft brewers. Since the program’s inception in 2004, American craft beer exports have increased 1,400 percent, with a 2018 value estimated at $74 million.
