Guild Update – Utah Brewers Guild

State Brewers Association Coordinator Acacia Coast recently visited the Utah Brewers Guild for their annual meeting. Here she provides an update on the guilds progress supporting small brewers in the state and navigating the unfriendly alcohol laws.


The Brewers Association is committed to providing resources to both existing associations and those in the conceptual or formative stages. Our staff attend 20-30 guild meetings a year to share information and gather best practices from a national perspective. The Brewers Association also assists state association efforts to fight state excise tax increase proposals and support pro-craft legislative initiatives.

If your guild has a useful resource to share or needs support please contact Acacia Coast or Pete Johnson.
