Our primary purpose is to advocate on behalf of our member companies in the legislative, regulatory, legal and public policy arenas. We vigorously support and defend the three-tier licensing and distribution system for the sale of beer and wine, as well as other beverage alcohol products in Arizona. We work closely with state policymakers to develop laws, rules and industry advisories that ensure equity and fairness for our members. We endorse ethical methods for distributing and selling beer and wine products and actively promote responsible consumption practices on the part of the many adult Arizona consumers who choose to enjoy those products. Through hard work and dedication, we continue to strive for excellence in serving our members and the industry.
In addition to offering a wide range of benefits and services to our member companies, BWDA serves as a valuable resource to policy makers and the public on alcohol regulation, educational programs designed to combat drunk driving and underage drinking, as well as assisting adult consumers with information on product availability in Arizona. We work in close cooperation with the seven member Arizona State Liquor Board and the Arizona Department of Liquor Licenses and Control (DLLC), and greatly value the vital regulatory role performed by the Board and the staff of the DLLC.
