Brewmaster: Ren Navarro

You would be hard-pressed to find someone in the Ontario beer industry who doesn’t know and love Ren Navarro. For over seven years she has been regarded as one of the most respected members in the industry, spending much of those years in the field as a sales representative for renowned and award-winning breweries. Working constantly as the face of breweries within her respective sales regions, Ren is no stranger to public speaking and has appeared frequently at workshops, conferences, and talks informing and entertaining people through her love of craft beer.

Alongside her fervent love of the craft beer world is her determination to bring it to a more diverse audience. Navarro is on the front-lines to initiate change both in and out of the industry. She is co-founder and former co-organizer of the Society of Beer Drinking Ladies, a Toronto-based monthly beer event that provides a safe and relaxing atmosphere for female-identified people. Additionally, using her perspective as a queer black woman within the industry, she has talked extensively about diversity in craft beer as a panelist at the 2019 Craft Brewers Conference in Denver, CO along with constant appearances in various forms of media, from podcasts, television and radio shows to newspapers.  

During each session, Ren will lead the group and share her knowledge of beer. Each participant will be able to sample three Ontario craft beers to taste and pair with 3-4 cheeses.

One session will be non-alcoholic beverages/cider (gluten-free).
