About this Event

Join us as we take you behind the scenes of our nation’s beer industry, introducing you to both large and small brewers, beer importers and industry suppliers. They will give you a glimpse of how they play a role in packaging some of your favorite beer brands and provide a wide variety of well-paying jobs.

On April 28, 2021, at 2:00 PM ET, we will hear from Austin Stein, Plant Manager at O-I Glass’ Danville, Virginia plant.

During the webinar, Austin will discuss how he runs a facility with nearly 150 employees that produces more than 1,000 beer bottles per minute. Austin has been with O-I for nine years and run the Danville plant for six months. During his O-I career, he has served in various roles, including line production leader, quality manager and production manager. He will also discuss initiatives O-I has undertaken to improve sustainability, innovate new glass packaging and ensure the beer you consume always comes in a high-quality bottle.

More than 2.1 million American jobs rely on a vibrant beer industry. America’s brewers, beer importers and industry suppliers are dedicated not just to providing our nation’s most popular alcohol beverage but also to giving back to communities across the United States.
