ALEXANDRIA, Va. – Following the passing of TTB Administrator John Manfreda, National Beer Wholesalers Association President & CEO Craig Purser issued the following statement:

“John was a true gentleman with countless professional accomplishments. He understood the importance of the 21st Amendment and always administered the law fairly. I learned a lot from John; he was the consummate, effective professional and regulator. And John was one of those government officials who understood the importance of relationships. As passionate as he was in his support for TTB, he was very committed to his family.
