Bringing Experts Together

This exciting one-day event brings brewers and renowned experts together from all over the Rocky Mountain Region for the exchange of information and ideas.  The program evolves from year to year, but always offers a combination of formal, lecture-style presentations and informal roundtables, workshops, and tutorials.

Mission and Purpose

Mission and Purpose

At $99 per person, symposium admission is affordable for those with even the most modest budget.  Breakfast and lunch are included in this great low price.  Because Colorado is home to so many microbreweries and brewpubs, we believe this is the perfect place to hold an event designed by and for breweries.  Even so, attendance is limited to about 200 people, making RMBS an approachable, relaxed brewing conference.

The RMBS strives to host leading industry professionals that represent every aspect of brewing.  Every symposium is packed full of information, and everyone walks away with not only a great deal of relevant information to their industry but also a great deal of new and renewed contacts.

More About RMBS

  • We've chosen to keep it small and affordable to assist you in getting what you need to run a successful business.  Don't miss out on the chance for great programming and unbeatable networking opportunities.  Register early, we sell out every single year!

  • 80% of attendees are head brewers.  This event brings them right to you.  Plus, you will not have to vie for their attention with dozens of other allied trades.

  • Consider bringing as much beer as you like!  Generally, we bring a large sampling of everyone's beer out just before lunch.  If everyone contributes, we will have a great array of brews to serve at lunch and sample throughout the afternoon.  Perhaps the best part of the event!  You can drop samples off as you check-in.
