Position Statement

Master Brewers unique strength is imbedded in our vision – United We Brew. For that reason, and at this moment in our industry’s evolution, Master Brewers states its commitment to diversity of thought and practice, while cherishing the element that unifies us – the vocation of brewing great beers and putting them safely in the hands of eager customers.
The Master Brewers Association of the Americas is an organization of brewers, not breweries. As such, we make no distinction between craft, non-craft, big or small, domestic or global, because our members are individuals who are professionals involved in the business of beer.  
Master Brewers honors the range of challenges that exist within a dynamic and global industry such as ours, in which brewing entities differ dramatically in terms of ownership, size, location, life cycle maturity, business model, beer styles, packaging types and so on. In doing so, we also hope to protect the right for all people and organizations in our great industry to share their opinions and to defend their point of view, while at the same time respecting each other’s place in the fabric of the whole.
We invite you to join us in United We Brew.​
