🍻 A Connection Behind Every Drink 🍻

There is a lot more behind an alcohol beverage than just feeling a buzz. A drink can also have a potent ability to bring people together and promote amazing conversation. Though if we look even further behind the drink, there are passionate people behind it. These people want to bring their beverage to the world while bringing a community together.

In this session we'll hear from the panelists on what sparked their passion, how they stayed on track during the difficult times, how they bring the community together, where their vision is leading the, and tips they have for aspiring brewers.

The panelists for this session are Betsy Lay, Co-founder of Lady Justice Brewing, and

CEO William Stuart - William has worked nearly every position in the hospitality industry for the last 14 years. Over the last 7 years he has been focused on Japanese beverages and cuisine, William grew a deep passion for sake and the idea of bringing local fresh sake to the state of Colorado. The idea of Colorado Sake Co. was born 4 years ago, 2 years of R&D while jumping through the legal nuances of opening a sake brewery in Colorado. Since opening in 2018 he and his team have grown Colorado Sake Co. from a 800 sq ft operation to 4000 sq ft and now moving production to 8000 sq ft. Moral of the story is american's love sake!
