Ren Navarro: Craft Beer’s Diversity Problem

February 27 @ 19:00 - 20:00

The popularity of craft beer in Ontario has multiplied over the past few years, to the delight of discerning palates across the province. Yet, if you look at who owns craft breweries and who gets represented in craft beer marketing, you’ll notice a lack of diversity. 




So why is this a problem? How can the craft beer industry shift to better represent the diverse population of Ontario? And what will happen when craft brewers realize the untapped potential of creating a craft beer culture that includes everyone? 




Ren Navarro, craft beer expert and founder of Beer. Diversity., will lead a discussion on these issues, with Tej Sandu, co-founder of Merit Brewing, and award-winning beer writer Robin LeBlanc




After the discussion, the bar will sell craft beers from MERIT Brewery, Red Circle Brewery, Muddy York Brewing Company.




Come learn, come taste, and come discuss these issues with fellow craft beer fans!
