About the event

For the 9th edition of the traditional brewery Symposium, we have chosen again the third largest market of the world as venue, which will allow, due the excellent geographical location of Recife, that different countries of Latin America come together for once again exchange knowledge about current topics of brewing technology and in addition intensify the networking among the participants.

Some of the topics that will be discussed at the event:

  • Raw materials: Market situation, quality
  • Brewing process optimization
  • Brewhouse, fermentation & filtration: Current, actually issues
  • Sustainability: Energy saving & environmental aspects
  • Filling, packaging & logistic optimizations
  • Cleaning & disinfection
