“MBAA gives me the best opportunities to meet brewing colleagues
from various-sized operations and nationalities, as well as suppliers from all facets of the industry around the world. The value of this networking for everyday practical operations should not be underestimated.”
“The meetings have provided me with a wonderful opportunity not only to network but to also talk with professionals in the field. I have learned things about brewing that you just can’t learn from a book.”
—Timothy Roser, University of Minnesota
