Brewers Association

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.
