The purpose of the National Beer Wholesalers Association is to provide leadership, which enhances the independent beer and beverage distribution industry; to advocate before government and the public; to encourage the responsible consumption of alcohol; and to provide programs and services that will benefit its members.
The NBWA 2021-2022 Report provides an update on the association’s activities, including NBWA’s advocacy initiatives and membership programs.
America’s beer distributors may be most recognizable as the people driving beer trucks down your local streets, delivering beer to neighborhood stores and bars. But there’s much more than meets the eye − independent beer distributors are licensed by both the federal and state governments and help brewers and importers of all sizes grow by delivering a wide selection of brands to retailers through a safe, transparent and accountable system.
