    Join SMPS Charlotte at NoDa Brewing Company on Wednesday, April 26th for an afternoon of A/E/C networking, craft beer, and a discussion centered on the brewery’s road to success and the current issues/challenges they are facing as growth continues.

    Our guest speakers and NoDa owners, Suzie and Tom Ford, will briefly hit on key points, including challenges associated with a crowded industry, the brewery’s unique marketing strategy, and how their new location plays into it. Guests will find out what led to the new 32,000-square-foot space and what went into the $7 million transformation to turn the nearly 80-year old building into NoDa Brewing’s new home.

    After the discussion, we will toast the 2016-2017 Monthly Member Spotlights and announce SMPS Charlotte’s Member of the Year. Our Member of the Year will receive a $500 SMPS grant scholarship. Non-members will be given the opportunity to enter a raffle for a FREE one-year SMPS membership. Following the announcement of SMPS Charlotte’s Member of the Year Award and the raffle winner, everyone is invited to take a brewery tour for a behind the scenes look at the brewing process from start to finish.
