Air Liquide Industrial U.S. LP and Air Liquide America Specialty Gases LLC (collectively “Air Liquide”) are proud to be the official gas provider for the 2015 Craft Brewers Conference & BrewExpo America®, held April 14 - 17, 2015 in Portland.

The annual conference, held at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland, Oregon, gathers over 11,500 brewers, brewery managers and restaurant personnel, and features nearly 80 seminars over three days. With nearly 600 exhibitors, the BrewExpo America is the premier trade show for craft brewers and for attendees and provides an opportunity to see the latest innovations, products and services for the brewing industry. It is the only industry event that serves brewpubs, breweries and wholesalers.

Air Liquide will provide cylinders of FSSC 22000 certified carbon dioxide (CO2) to breweries participating in the show. Ron Idol, Business Development Manager for Food & Beverage at Air Liquide Industrial U.S. LP, states “The team responsible for the draught beer set up at the show will be able to experience firsthand how Air Liquide can optimize carbon dioxide and offer a variety of grades and purities to suit their needs. Air Liquide’s ALIGAL™ draught gas helps eliminate flat beer, airborne bacteria and odors associated with air compressors.”

Air Liquide maintains a leading position in brewery applications and understands the importance of visibility in the marketplace. John Burgess, Air Liquide America Specialty Gases, LLC, Western Region Manager, commented that “Working with the Craft Brewers Association is a great opportunity to better acquaint new breweries with the benefits of using our certified gases and to continue positioning Air Liquide as a leading supplier of food and beverage grade gases and services."

In addition to being the official gas provider for the 2015 Craft Brewers Conference & BrewExpo America, Air Liquide will exhibit a 10’x20’ booth. Visit Air Liquide at Booth #1808.
