From Brewers Association, 01/24/19
As you have seen over the last several weeks, the partial government shutdown has been widely discussed with a heavy emphasis on and speculation around its impact on the U.S. economy and workforce. Breweries are of course no exception to the shutdown’s impact and the staff at the Brewers Association (BA) has been hard at work ensuring our voice and our concerns are being heard. As the shutdown nears the one-month mark, we wanted to reach out to our members to share a bit about what we have been doing in Washington to combat the effects of the shutdown.

The Brewers Association in Washington:
The Brewers Association knows that 2019 is off to an uncertain start but America’s small brewers are manufacturers and entrepreneurs who are crucial to our nation’s economy. The Brewers Association will continue to fight for our members’ interests and provide additional updates as new information is made available.
