Craft beverage summit on tap for April 8 in South Charleston
The Robert C. Byrd Institute (RCBI) will sponsor “Craft: A Farm to Bottle Summit” April 8 in South Charleston to gather a variety of statewide business interests to support growth in the emerging craft beverage economy – from soda and teas to beer, wine and spirits.
Participants will explore ways that craft products can engage various interests in agriculture, hospitality and tourism to build markets for this growing business sector.
“This event is a must for craft brewers, farmers, retailers and others in the region who are interested in becoming a part of this rapidly growing West Virginia industry,” said Bill Woodrum, director of entrepreneurship and agricultural innovations at RCBI. “Plus, it will provide attendees the opportunities to sample some of the unique and tasty beverages already produced here.”
