Brewery News and Events

I am pleased to announce that our own Guild Board Member, Tony Simmons, was just elected to the Brewers Association Board of Directors. Tony joins a prestigious Board including Sam Calagione of Dogfish Head, Gary Fish of Deschutes Brewing, and Ken Grossman of Sierra Nevada Breweing, among others. I think this is wonderful news and a good development for pub brewers across the nation. Tony has worked tirelessly on the Brewpub Subcommittee for the BA for several years. Tony was recently re-elected to serve on our Guild’s Board.  This was his first time running for the BA.

Cheers to Tony,


John Carlson

Executive Director
