Keynote – This year’s keynote presenter is John Mallett. For two decades he managed all beer production for Bell’s Brewery in Kalamazoo, Michigan, propelling many of the brewery’s brands to near cult status among beer enthusiasts. Last year he retired from Bell’s and became VP of Brewing and Quality at New Belgium. He is currently taking time away from brewery life and has graciously accepted our invitation to present the keynote at the Washington Craft Beer Summit.
