In Craft Beer, Ken Grossman is legend. His passion is evident, and his story both inspires and teaches.
It may be safe to say that Ken Grossman is also an icon of American business and entrepreneurship. One look at the Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. historical timeline and one becomes acutely aware that the brand’s success is a direct result of this one man’s tenacity, courage, and commitment to quality.
So then it should be no surprise that we here at the Beer Bloggers Conference are tickled pink to announce that Ken will be keynoting the BBC this summer in San Diego. Whoo hoo!
Sierra Nevada has been a big supporter of the Beer Bloggers Conference – both from a sponsorship standpoint and as a participant at the conferences; it’s clear that Ken Grossman and his team value the role that bloggers play in Craft Beer.
“Beer writing is tough to do well, and craft beer needs it,” Grossman said. “We have thousands of talented brewers, big and small, doing great things, and bloggers will be the ones to amplify the beers you just can’t miss. They’re helping drive this whole thing forward.” – Ken Grossman
Bloggers even play a cameo role in their Our Story video!
We look forward to having Ken join our community in person when we gather in San Diego in August, and we appreciate him taking the time to talk with us. Sounds like he’s excited too!
“We’ve been part of the Conference for a few years, and our team always has a great time pouring beer and getting to know these writers who are champions for craft beer,” Grossman said. “I’m excited to join them in San Diego to celebrate their work and share my perspective on the industry.” – Ken Grossman
