"As we did a lot more research, we realized that there really weren't a lot of people of color in the industry that were showcasing their love of craft beer,” said Ashburn"
The goal is to reach more people and in order to do this the brewery industry has expanded their social media. Now is easier than ever to get involved and connect!
