Join fellow ULI members for a drink and discussion on the exponential growth of craft breweries and their increasingly prominent role in community-based economic development.  Hear from three active industry members about what makes craft beer appealing to so many.

Find out answers to the following:

  • What have been the economic consequences for owners as well as for communities?
  • Does it spur “add-on” new investment?
  • What are the barriers to entry?

Attendees will also have the opportunity to tour The Plant, a former meatpacking facility transformed into a collaborative community of urban food producers committed to sustainable practices, as well as Whiner Beer, which focuses on creating barrel-aged beer through environmentally responsible brewing.

Panelists:
  
Danielle D’Alessandro, Executive Director, Illinois Craft Brewers Guild
Lesley Roth, Founder/Owner, Englewood Brews
Brian Taylor, Master Brewer and Co-Founder, Whiner Beer
