“The Power of Collaboration” will cover the impact of brewery collaboration, how it brings the community together, process evolutions learned from one another, and more. Don’t miss the chance to hear from these brewers what NOT to do!

“We’ve been enamored to see more independent craft breweries grow and find success over the past several years throughout Long Beach. Our friendly neighbors at Ambitious Ales are no exception, and we are flattered to brew a collaboration beer with them! Executing an almost identical WCIPA at both Beachwood and Ambitious allows us to bring each of our unique brewing processes to the table and provides an excellent learning opportunity for both parties. While many experienced brewers maintain techniques that they’ve found work well for them, collaborating with friends is a great way to find new insights and perspectives. I can’t wait to try the beers side-by-side!” Long Beach Head Brewer, Gene Wagoner
