State brewers guilds are non-profit associations that protect and promote the local craft brewing industry. Across the country, these groups are making a difference through organizing events, fighting unfavorable laws and being the collective voice for craft brewers in their states. The Brewers Association is once again featuring guilds at the Great American Beer Festival (GABF) Support Your Local Brewer Pavilion to draw awareness to the important work they do. This year 18 guilds were featured, serving samples of beer from brewers in their states.
GABF attendees who visited the pavilion had the opportunity to visit with guild leadership, taste beers that were not available in other areas of the festival and sign up as Support Your Local Brewer Activists.
