Founded in 2007 by a group of committed and passionate brewers, the Massachusetts Brewers Guild serves as the collective voice for brewers on Beacon Hill while also providing marketing and educational resources for breweries across the state. Promotion and protection are at the forefront of the Massachusetts Brewers Guild’s work. Despite the success of the craft beer industry, brewers face many challenges including access to market, cost of raw materials and ingredients, and operation in a highly regulated and taxed industry making protection an essential component of the organization’s mission.
