Innovation Brew Works Attends Largest 
Beer Festival in California

In mid-September, Innovation Brew Works (IBW) personnel 

traveled to Sacramento to participate in the California Craft 

Beer Summit, the largest two-day beer festival in California. 

IBW Manager Jennifer Waggener, IBW Beer Production 

Manager Koby Harris, Pony Express at the CBA Manager Rosa 

Morales-Jimenez, IBW Assistant Brewer Eddie Padilla, and 

Dining Services employee Alex Iniguez attended the event.

This event included a hands-on, educational exposition at 

the Sacramento Convention Center complete with exhibits, 

demos, displays, educational seminars, and food pairings. 

In addition to the expo, there was a Brewers Showcase Beer 

Festival which featured over 150 California-only craft brewers, 

including IBW. The event was set up right on Capitol Mall and 

offered over 400 unique beers. 

IBW served Rubottom’s Red, ’66 Blonde, Brethren Belgian, 

and Bronco Brown to hundreds of beer enthusiasts. While all 

of their brews were well received, the ’66 Blonde and Bronco 

Brown welcomed the highest praise. IBW also distributed 

stickers, coasters, t-shirts, and pamphlets about their 

operation and brews.
