High Country Hop Technical Symposium – The Presentations

Ahead of the 2023 High Country Hop festival in Beechworth, Bridge Road Brewers put on a Technical Symposium sponsored by the Independent Brewers Association.

The event featured a world-class lineup of speakers, panels and presentations, and drew more than 100 people to the Victorian High Country from the beer industry across Australia and further afield. The day went well beyond hops to cover topics such as sustainability and succeeding as a small independent producer, and at times went outside the world of beer too, while Firestone Walker brewmaster Matt Brynildson (pictured above) flew in to give a keynote presentation on behalf of the Hop Quality Group.

The Crafty Pint team MC'd and recorded the event and you can listen to each of the panels and presentations below. Thanks again to the Bridge Road team for inviting us to be part of such a great event, one they hope to build into an essential fixture on the beer calendar with a growing reach beyond Australia.
