Go behind the scenes and beyond the taprooms with State of Craft Beer Author & Photographer Matthew Janzen. His presentation will take you down the path that compelled him to quit his job so he could travel to breweries, and how that journey led him to meet farmers, artists, scientists, virtually all walks of life and businesses that are benefiting from craft beer's astronomical growth. Even if you’re not a fan of craft beer, you will be captivated by the trends he discovered while driving over 30,000 miles to explore the economic impact of this booming industry. Learn how breweries are strengthening their communities, and how the importance of that story became a book.
About the book
State of Craft Beer is a unique journey through the beer-making process, following raw products as they make their way from fields and factories, through breweries, and into our glass. The pages — filled with photos, stories, and slices of everyday life — weave a tale of passionate, hard-working people who care about the communities they live in.
Passionate, comfortable with being in front of large audiences, filled with fun facts, and that’s all before he starts drinking beer. Matthew Janzen hails from small town Wisconsin and currently lives in Wisconsin’s biggest town (Milwaukee), but he’s more than willing to head to your state or town and spread the good word about great beer.
