It’s time to make plans and get tickets for the upcoming WA Craft Beer Summit. The event returns to Puyallup this November. It’s more than a trade show. It’s an educational opportunity with a number of educational breakout sessions. Also, it is a great chance to mingle with, and learn from, other brewing industry professionals.
Here is the latest announcement from the Washington Brewers Guild regarding the WA Craft Beer Summit on November 3rd and 4th.
We’re excited to welcome Brewers Association Safety Ambassador Matt Stinchfield, as our WA Craft Beer Summit Keynote Speaker!
Matt is the BA Safety Ambassador, member of the BA Safety Subcommittee, and a frequent speaker at conferences, state guilds, and webinars. He is lead instructor for the OSHA-funded Hazard Reduction Practices for Cleaning Draught Beer Lines course and the annual Brewery Safety Bootcamp at the Craft Brewers Conference. Currently, Matt is writing the book on brewery safety for Brewers Publications, shooting for release next year. In his spare time, he forages mushrooms and wrangles trout.
Brewers Association Safety Ambassador Matt Stinchfield enlightens and educates on the principal drivers of safety culture. A strong safety culture isn’t about mandates and enforcement. It isn’t about designating a select individual to lead your safety program. In fact, a healthy safety culture doesn’t have much to do with safety. Sound paradoxical? Find out how to transform building blocks you already have into a safe, productive, and inclusive work environment. This talk is for all brewery employees, managers and owners.
