MIT is hosting a terrific event Monday night, Dec. 10, for anyone interested in the business of brewing beer. A well-informed, local panel of industry folks will discuss the ins and outs of a rapidly-expanding craft brewing industry from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Kirsch Auditorium at MIT's Stata Center. A post-event networking session will follow at the R&D Pub.

All of the speakers are key players in the local craft beer scene. I've been lucky enough to talk beer with many of them, and it's rare to find a more informed group in one place. They are:

Drew Brosseau, Founder & President, Mayflower Brewing Company
Bryan Greenhagen, Founder and Brewer, Mystic Brewery
Sam Hendler, Co-founder, Jacks Abbey Brewing
Ben Howe, Brewer and Founder, Enlightenment Ales
Chris Lohring, Founder, Notch Brewing
Martha Simpson-Holley, Manager and Assistant Brewer, Pretty Things Beer and Ale Project

You can register for the event and get more information here.
