Contract and Gypsy Brewing and Alternating Proprietorships
Mon, Jun 11 at 5:30pm
With the rise of Contract Brewing and Gypsy brewers and a new way to share a brewhouse called Alternating Proprietorship, it's time for Portland Beer Week to explore this little talked about subject in the annual seminar series. This casual discussion featuring a panel of brewery owners and experts who brew their beer at others brewhouses or host such beers. This new way of opening a brewery does not require you to have a space and your own equipment and thus is far less of an investment.
