2023 Highlights

BREW kicked off its Acting Stronger phase with the inaugural BREW Leadership Forum, held on April 26, 2023, in Washington D.C. Over 100 attendees enjoyed networking with peers across the distribution industry while hearing from a star-studded lineup of speakers including Congresswoman Stephanie Bice (OK-05); Ruchi Desai, Co-Founder and CEO of EIGHT; and Shannon Cassidy, Founder and CEO of Bridge Between, Inc.

A highlight for many attendees was the “Women Leaders in the Beer Industry” panel. Moderator Laura Markstein, President, Markstein Sales Co., led a thoughtful and freeflowing conversation between Val LaMantia, Owner and Partner of L&F Distributors and Chair of the Center for Alcohol Policy; Nikki Beyrle, Chief Human Resources Officer, LDF; and Jenn Litz-Kirk, Director of Content, Beer Business Daily and Craft Business Daily.
