VLB back at international trade fairs and congresses

After a long, involuntary break, things finally got going again: VLB teams took part in international trade events in the USA, India, Brazil and Spain.

Craft Brewers Conference, USA

At the beginning of May, a visit to the leading conference and trade show for the craft beer industry in the USA was on the agenda, which attracted around 10,000 participants to Minneapolis (Minnesota, MN). On site at the VLB booth at BrewExpo America were Roberto Biurrun, Jan Biering and Christopher Bergthold. Jan Biering also gave a presentation in the conference program on recipe development for non-alcoholic beers.
