Taprooms Issue

Say it ain’t so, Charlie! The publish date for the January/February 2019 The New Brewer coincides with Charlie Papazian’s exit from the Brewers Association after 40 years. We honor our founding father with a feature on his legacy by Dick Cantwell as well as in the back-page interview. In addition, January/February marks our Taprooms issue as the Brewers Association ushers in a new member category to accommodate the increasingly popular business model.
