MBAA [members have] knowledge and experience, which is shared through forums and direct communication. It is a great comfort to walk into a brewery in your travels and feel welcomed by other brewers whom you have met through the MBAA and know that you share the common bond of passion for the life we call beer.

—Todd A. Marcus, Cape Cod Beer
