Recently, Acacia Coast, State Brewers Association Coordinator, traveled to Louisiana and Mississippi. She provides an update of the challenges craft breweries face and how the guilds are working to address these concerns.
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.
