    SWVA Craft Beer Summit

    May 15, 2015

    Heartwood: Southwest Virginia's Artisan Gateway, One Heartwood Circle, Abingdon, VA 24210

    The Southwest Virginia Craft Beer Summit aims to highlight an emerging industry in Southwest Virginia. This summit is a one day event, allowing industry leaders and community stakeholders to discuss the economic development opportunities surrounding craft beer. The summit will be followed by a tour of Wolf Hills Brewery, a local brewery in Abingdon.

    • To discuss, and potentially advance, the development of a Southwest Virginia Craft Brew Trail or a similar marketing campaign.
    • To underscore the importance of craft brewing to the creative economy in Southwest Virginia.
    • To foster a dialogue on how craft brewing can fit in with other tourism initiatives and to facilitate those partnerships.
