“You’d be hard pressed to identify an industry that is as dynamic, exciting and competitive as is the beer industry today,” said NBWA President & CEO Craig Purser. “From the growth in the number of new breweries and choices for American consumers to the expansion and innovation by established global brands, the beer industry is experiencing a renaissance and distributors are adding value and expanding that growth every day.”

“Brewers come in all shapes and sizes: mega-brewers, micro-brewers, regional brewers, nano-brewers, organic brewers, domestic brewers and import brewers… whatever the name, beer provides pure, liquid refreshment to millions of thirsty Americans,” Purser said. “NBWA is thrilled to bring together, a true cross section of leadership representing the American brewing industry.”
