The country’s largest annual conference for the craft beer industry, the Craft Brewers Conference & BrewExpo America (CBC®), hosted by the Brewers Association, is returning to the Music City Center in Nashville, Tennessee, on May 7-10, 2023.
Small and independent craft breweries are the stained glass windows of communities across the nation—they’re vibrant, unique, and original. Craft breweries are more than innovation hubs and neighborhood gathering holes, they are major economic drivers. Craft beer is a $26.8 billion industry in the U.S. with Tennessee being home to more than 140 breweries, representing $1.3 million in economic impact for the state. With more than 11,000 anticipated attendees, CBC 2023 is expected to generate substantial economic impact for the city via hotel stays, patronage at restaurants, bars, and tourist sites, and sales tax, to name a few. This marks the second time the Craft Brewers Conference will take place in the Music City, the first being in 2019.
