Craft Brewers Conference - Canadian Breweries Well Represented

Canadian brewery representatives were everywhere during last week's Craft Brewers Conference.  When I posted here last week that I was headed that way with a healthy number of Canadian breweries, I was way off.  I listed a handful, but 26 breweries/brewpubs where there from all parts of our great country. And there were 10 other businesses from Canada (and possibly more) in attendance, along with numerous exhibitors whose names have escaped me and two individuals planning Toronto brewery openings in the near future.

I know in speaking with many of the different brewery reps the seminars they attended sparked some fire in their bellies to either try brewing something new, or at least look into doing something big and bold; maybe even a cultist brew.

Here is a list of the Canadian representation in Chicago.  Sorry to those I may have missed.  If you were in Chicago and I didn't mention you, please shoot me an email and I'll get you added.
