Kris Spaulding, owner and president of Brewery Vivant, Grand Rapids, Mich., has been elected to serve as a pub brewery representative on the Brewers Association Board of Directors. Her term starts immediately and expires February 2023. The next association board meeting will be June 30 and July 1, an in-person meeting in Boulder, Colorado.
The Brewers Association held a special election for pub brewery members earlier this month after former board member Sean Casey vacated the position.
Kris co-founded Brewery Vivant in 2010 and continues to own the brewery with Jason Spaulding. In 2012, the brewery was awarded a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certification (LEED – Silver). In 2014, Brewery Vivant became a certified B Corporation, meeting “rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.”
The Brewers Association welcomes Kris to the board and thanks the candidates and voters in this election.
