After the official program, the approx. 70 attendees were treated to “Danske snitter” made by Chef Soren Pedersen, Carlsberg & not to mention craft beers from Jester King Brewery in Austin.

Later Tine Rau Schiott presented DACC’s newest offer to its members: a CV database on our website, where individuals can post their CV’s for member companies to view and make initial contact – learn more here http://www.daccsw.org/cv-database.aspx

Prior to the conclusion of the meeting DACC were fortunate enough to have Jeppe Jarnit-Bjergsø, founder of

“The Evil Twin” brewery and owner of “Tørst” restaurant in Brooklyn as guest speaker – even though short it was very interesting to hear about his success as craft beer brewer - Great 6 page article in New York Times from Sunday 30th March about Jeppe & his brother
