Three Cheers for Three-Tier And Your Craft Beer Distributor

Keeli Monroe - - Brew Studs

I'd like to present a handful of scenarios to you:
It's 5:00 P.M. on a Friday (finally), and like many Americans, your work week is ending. You're ready for two things: the weekend, and some good damn beer – because let's be honest, the weekend isn't the weekend without the good damn beer. Lucky you, because this is America. Prohibition is dead, and you've got options!

Maybe you stop by your go-to gas station and pick up a six-pack. Easy. But maybe you put off buying groceries all week and consequently are kicking yourself for it. Now, you have to go because your pantry resembles one ransacked during the zombie apocalypse. So, you pick up your weekend beer at the grocery store since you have to go there anyway. Or maybe you're feeling froggy because hey, it's Friday! So, you decide to meet your friends downtown for drinks to celebrate the first moments of a weekend so fresh and young it's still in diapers. There are many roads you could travel, my friend, but they all end in the same place: that magical, perfectly carbonated and balanced oasis of craft beer.

A beer bill fit for all

Bob Pease & Jim McGreevy - - The Hill

Beer has been a dynamic industry in America for centuries. Today, there are more than 4,000 breweries in the country, the highest total since the 1870s. The beer industry creates jobs, supports other businesses and pours billions of dollars into the economy.

But an outdated tax code is placing an undue burden on this industry and could become a barrier to growth.

The Craft Beverage Modernization and Tax Reform Act gives brewers the needed capital infusion to invest in their companies and boost production in order to meet consumer demand and invest in product innovation giving consumers more choice when ordering their favorite alcohol beverage.

America’s Beer Distribution Industry Recognizes Economic Impact of Its Workforce This Labor Day

Kathleen Joyce - - NBWA News

As Americans prepare to celebrate Labor Day, the National Beer Wholesalers Association (NBWA) is recognizing the men and women of the beer distribution industry whose work positively impacts the nation's economy.

NBWA President and CEO Craig Purser said, "From truck drivers to fork lift operators and from sales representative to graphic artists, America's beer distribution employees work day in and day out to make this the best beer market in the world for everyone."

"With more than 3,700 breweries in operation across the United States today, independent distributors are delivering more beer varieties and brands to the marketplace than ever before," Purser added. "Because of distribution employees who drive the beer trucks in local communities, fill the beer coolers at corner stores and deliver new tap handles to neighborhood pubs, consumers can choose from an unparalleled variety of beer – from familiar domestic brands to intriguing imports and exciting new products from local and small craft brewers. That's something we can all celebrate!"
