Brewers Association


Brewers Association

BA was established by the merger of the Association of Brewers (founded in 1978) and the Brewers' Association of America (founded in 1942). BA's purpose is to promote and protect small and independent American brewers, their craft beers and the community of brewing enthusiasts. Members are professional brewers at micro, regional, large and pub breweries, suppliers to the industry, and other interested individuals.
