The Brewers Association (BA) invites your brewery to participate in the 2017 Stockholm Beer and Whisky Festival. The BA will again participate in this event, one of Europe’s largest trade and consumer shows. The show runs from September 28-30 and again from October 5-7. This will be the BA’s thirteenth appearance at the festival. Previous visits have resulted in new distribution for U.S. craft beers in Sweden’s retail monopoly, the local on-premise sector, and elsewhere in Scandinavia. We look forward to continuing that success by again featuring a range of beers and as always, all beers featured at the event through the BA will be submitted to the Festival’s international beer competition. Sylvia Kopp, BA EDP American Craft Beer European Ambassador will be representing the Brewers Association at the festival. Sylvia will be presenting master classes on American craft beer.
