Renaissance Yeast to Introduce Bright at the U.S. Craft Brewers Conference Innovative New Beer Yeast Strains Created by Selective Breeding

Vancouver, Canada — April 27, 2016 — Renaissance Yeast, a leader in selectively bred wine and cider yeast technology, is excited to introduce Bright Brewers Yeast (www.brewingbright.com) to craft brewers at the upcoming U.S. Craft Brewers Conference from May 3-6 in Philadelphia, PA. Created to commercialize Renaissance’s new line of selectively bred, premium-quality beer yeast strains, Bright will attend and exhibit with Gusmer Enterprises at Booth #1015.

Bright uses selective breeding to create high-performance strains of brewer’s yeast that deliver the ideal characteristics for each distinct style of beer. Selective breeding also gives Bright the ability to produce hybrid yeast strains that have the potential to create unique new styles of beer. Additionally, all of Bright’s beer yeast strains prevent the formation of hydrogen sulfide (H2S) during fermentation.

“We believe our exciting new strains and ability to selectively breed beer yeast is a major breakthrough for the brewing industry. We’re looking forward to introducing Bright at the 2016 Craft Brewers Conference,” said Dr. John Husnik, CEO of Renaissance Yeast.

The Craft Brewers Conference (www.craftbrewersconference.com) is the largest craft brewing conference and trade show in the U.S., bringing together more than 12,000 attendees and 835 exhibitors. The Bright team will be available throughout the conference with Gusmer Enterprises at Booth #1015 to meet brewers, answer questions, and discuss potential collaborative partnerships.
