The trade visitors gave top marks to the supporting program. There was immediate success for the first EXPORT FORUM German Beer, which was already held the day before the fair, as there was for the MicroBrew Symposium. The Forum BrauBeviale with issues taken directly from the sector for the sector, PET@BrauBeviale with important impulses in the beverage packaging sector and, not least the “Creative beverage culture” trend theme, met with great interest among the visitors. In this connection, among others retailers, restaurateurs/caterers and also producers attended the tasting sessions conducted by renowned beer sommeliers and spirits tasters in the Craft Beer Corner. But non-alcoholic beverages also featured at the event: the water-tasting sessions conducted by trained water sommeliers also attracted large numbers of visitors. Exceptional beer specialties were also on offer and provided an experience away from the exhibition centre: in the atmospheric “Schanzenbräu & Friends” after-show party or the numerous restaurants and bars, which formed part of the “BierErlebnis Nürnberg” (Nuremberg Beer Experience).
