TORONTO, ON – A new organization representing more than 700 craft breweries from across Canada was announced today at the Canadian Brewing Awards & Conference in Toronto.
Encompassing the membership of all ten provincial craft brewing associations, as well as other independent breweries and industry partners, the Canadian Craft Brewers Association – Association des Microbrasseries Canadiennes will be focused on three strategic goals:
- Educating federal government on the growing positive economic impact created by the craft beer sector, which includes a substantial business ecosystem of primarily small and local companies;
- Working with the ten provincial craft beer Associations, providing services to support the rapid growth of member companies in the sector, many of which are new;
- Promoting the hundreds of breweries and thousands of unique Canadian craft beer offerings to beer-drinking consumers nationally and internationally
The Board of Directors for the new Association features 15 members, including one to represent each of the ten provincial associations, and one to represent craft brewery members in each of five geographic regions in Canada.
More details including a full list of participating organisations and the board members can be found on the CCBA-AMBC website.
