Government Affairs | NBWA: America's Beer and Beverage Distributors
  • NBWA educates federal lawmakers, agencies and regulators on the value of state-based alcohol regulation as well as the economic and regulatory issues that impact Main Street businesses such as beer distributors.

  • Beer distributors operate within a time-tested, state-based regulatory framework that allows all brands of beer to get to market using many potential routes. NBWA advocates for states’ ability to oversee alcohol issues – in accordance with the 21st Amendment – that impact their communities and local citizens, which enables states the ability to change state alcohol laws to reflect current needs and desires.

  • The NBWA Political Action Committee works to support elected leaders and candidates for office who understand Main Street businesses such as beer distributors, the importance of state-based alcohol regulation and the 21st Amendment.

  • One of the best ways to learn about what it takes to get beer to market is a tour of a beer distribution warehouse.

  • Distributors: Let NBWA know about your relationships with lawmakers representing the areas where you do business. Effective advocacy is rooted in education, communication and relationships.
