Saturday, November 4 | 17:00 – 19:00 brought to you by Cimbali UK It’s an openly acknowledged fact that there are lots of parallels between specialty coffee and the craft beer/craft spirits movement – so, for this year’s panel discussion, we thought we’d tackle all of our mixed metaphors head on and chat with the folks working hard to solve similar problems of developing your offering, communicating with customers, and finding the sweet spot between following your bliss and financial sustainability.  Over the course of our two hours on stage, Tamper Tantrum’s Stephen Leighton and Colin Harmon will be joined by Alphabet Brewing’s Dan Hocking (brewer), Weird Beard Brew Co’s Bryan Spooner (co-founder & head brewer) and Natasha Wolf (communications), and Turncoat’s Terry Langton (co-founder & head distiller). Between the five of them, they’ve an incredible amount of combined experience – there is much to learn!
