Laurie Goldberg is the Founder and Managing Director of AmeriCraft Imports, the leading importer and distributor of American craft beer in Hong Kong. Laurie is an attorney and beer enthusiast who moved from Los Angeles, California, to Hong Kong in 2011 with her husband Adam, a fellow beer lover and avid home brewer. Saddened to find little American craft beer in Hong Kong, as well as little knowledge of the exciting developments in American brewing, AmeriCraft Imports was born from Laurie's desire to keep drinking her favorite American brews and to change the perceptions of American beer in Hong Kong.
AmeriCraft currently imports over 50 beers from 11 different U.S. breweries and fosters beer education and appreciation through regular events, speaking engagements, and participation in a variety of local organizations. Laurie is a co-founder and officer of the Craft Beer Association of Hong Kong, as well as the Chair of the Entrepreneurs/SME Committee of the American Chamber of Commerce. She is an active member of Hong Kong’s small business community and speaks frequently about starting and operating a business in Hong Kong. Recent speaking engagements include RTHK Radio, the American Women’s Association, the American Brewers Association, and the American Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong.
