Benefits

The Washington Brewers Guild is an awesome community of brewers and industry suppliers.  We offer three types of membership.

Brewery Memberships

Our member breweries are the heart of the Washington Brewers Guild.  Together, we are stronger, and together we craft.  We need ALL Washington breweries working together to make our collective voice heard!  Regular Brewery memberships are available to breweries in Washington that produce less than six million barrels per year, and that have no more than 25 percent ownership by another beverage alcohol company that is not itself eligible to be a regular member. Brewery member benefits include:

  • Direct access and participation in shaping Washington State and federal beer laws
  • Regular updates, guidance and support on legislative and regulatory issues that impact your business
  • Access to member-­only email groups where 240+ breweries share information on industry issues and news, post equipment for sale, vendor referrals, make trades for hops and more
  • Networking and educational opportunities at regular membership meetings
  • Eligibility to participate in WBG Cask Beer Festival and Winter Beer Festival
  • Participation in Annual Olympia Hill Climb and Legislative Reception
  • Voting rights in annual WBG board of directors elections

Allied Memberships

Allied memberships are available to tradesmen, retailers, distributors and suppliers doing business with the brewing industry or any individual, partnership or corporation in an allied industry or endeavor.  Our allied members are valued members of the WBG community and enjoy increased access to WA craft brewers, visibility at WBG events and many other sponsorship and networking opportunities.  Allied membership benefits include:
