As craft breweries navigate the financial fallout from on-premise closures due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Brewers Association (BA), which represents the nation’s small and independent brewers, is offering free temporary memberships.
Benefits of membership include access to the BA’s online educational materials and webinars. Annual dues start at $195 for breweries making 500 barrels annually or fewer, and increase to $15,000 for breweries making more than 750,000 barrels.
Interested brewers should email email@example.com. The BA has set up a COVID-19 resource center that includes technical information about shutting down draft lines, sanitizing breweries and other topics, as well as a digital marketing toolkit for promotion during on-premise shutdowns and a directory of breweries’ alternative retail methods by state.
