A tasting and panel discussion with industry insiders about beer trends, brewery tours, and ale trails in New York and New Jersey. Currently, these two states contain more than 120 small breweries and brewpubs, many of which are new and within two hours of Manhattan.
Jeremy Cowan joins a short list of keynote speakers at this year’s Craft Brewers Conference in Washington, D.C. (March 26-29, 2013).
As an experiment for Chanukah 1996, Jeremy founded Shmaltz Brewing Company from his apartment in San Francisco with the first contract-brewed batch of 100 cases of HE’BREW® beer bottled, labeled and delivered by hand from the trunk of his grandmother’s Volvo. 16 years later, with 10 full-time employees, Shmaltz sells nearly 15,000 barrels of over 20 beer styles to 35 states through over 4,000 retailers. Ranked in 2012 as one of the Top-50 Brewers in the World by RateBeer.com, Shmaltz was also included in the Top-50 Fastest Growing Bay Area Companies by San Francisco Business Times and is a recipient of the Distinguished Business Award by the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce. In 2010, Jeremy released a small business memoir, Craft Beer Bar Mitzvah, How It Took 13 Years, Extreme Jewish Brewing, and Circus Sideshow Freaks To Make Shmaltz Brewing an International Success.

Earlier this year, Jeremy spoke for a group of invited guests at Lehigh University about his whirlwind journey in the craft beer business. He’Brew beer flowed freely for guests 21 and over, while Jeremy read from Craft Beer Bar Mitzvah. The response was tremendous and we thank Rabbi Seth Goren for these kind words:
“In addition to opening up about his fascinating professional journey, Jeremy humorously and humbly shared his breathtaking range of knowledge about craft beer. He was personable, gracious and warm, and all present highly enjoyed themselves.”
