Unlocking Sustainable Practices: Beer X Conference Sheds Lights on Carbon Impact of Cask and Keg Management

Beer X, one of the UK's most prestigious beer festivals, is not just about sipping ales and enjoying the company of fellow beer enthusiasts. It's a platform for industry leaders to come together, share insights, and drive positive change. This year, the spotlight is on Christian Barden, a seasoned leader in the global beer industry, who will be delivering a thought-provoking session on the carbon impact of cask and keg management.

The session, hosted by Barry Watts of the Society of Independent Brewers (SIBA), promises to delve deep into the packaging challenges faced by breweries of all sizes. It's not just about the financial burden; it's about understanding the environmental implications of our choices. Christian, known for his passion for triple bottom line business, will bring his wealth of experience to the forefront as he discusses the little-measured and often misunderstood carbon impact of cask and keg management.

With almost 16 years at AB InBev and a rich background in various beverage, hospitality, and technology-enabled companies, Christian is no stranger to the complexities of the industry. As a UK and Europe founder of both Konvoy and Kegstar, where he served as global CEO, he has spearheaded initiatives that have reshaped the way we think about sustainability in brewing.

This session is not just a talk; it's a call to action. It's a reminder that every decision we make, no matter how small, has a ripple effect on our planet. By understanding the carbon impact of cask and keg management, we can pave the way for a more sustainable future—one pint at a time.

Join us at Beer X as we unlock sustainable practices and strive towards a greener, more responsible brewing industry.
