2019 Annual Pink Boots Members Meeting & Hop Rub During GABF

Our annual Pink Boots Society International members meeting in Denver, Colorado during GABF will be held at Blue Moon Brewing Company on Wednesday, October 2, 2019.

The 2019 meeting will focus on creating the Hop Rub for 2020 Pink Boots Blend by Yakima Chief Hops. Our special speaker is Joey Catron, Director of Hoperations, for Yakima Chief Ranches. He will explain what they do, how they do it, and why transparent communication between farmers and brewers is paramount in the continued growth and health of our respective industries.  Joey will also discuss how new hops are branded and brought to market, and how they work with growers to ensure the highest quality of hops are being produced.  

** Online preregistration is now closed, but you can still join us and register on-site.  Space is limited to 150 guests. **

This is NOT on the convention campus, and you CAN attend this event without GABF tickets!
