In 2007, Massachusetts brewers came together to form the Massachusetts Brewers Guild (MBG) for the purposes of promoting craft brewing and protecting the interests of craft brewers in Massachusetts.

The membership based association is open to all Massachusetts breweries licensed by the federal Tax and Trade Bureau and the Commonwealth’s Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission and is a 501(c)(6) non-profit corporation. 

At the time the MBG was formed there were only 34 brewing licenses issued in the state. Today, there are more than 200 operating breweries across the Commonwealth including brewpubs, farm-breweries, and manufacturers.

Seek the seal!

Seek the seal!

How can you tell if a beer is made by a U.S. craft brewer? Seek the independent craft brewer seal.

The independent craft brewer seal was launched in June 2017 by the Brewers Association, publishers of The Brewers Association (BA) is the membership organization dedicated to promoting and protecting small and independent craft brewers in the United States. The BA defines a craft brewer as small, traditional and independent.

The logo is designed as an upside-down beer bottle, which symbolizes how the U.S. craft beer movement has turned beer on its head worldwide.
