What a great way to kick off 2018!
More than 175 members assembled at the Mass Brewers Guild’s annual meeting at Castle Island for networking, industry learning and to build a stronger brewing community.
Highlights included a keynote address from Governor Charlie Baker, who commented on the growth of the industry and the jobs the craft beer industry is creating in Massachusetts, followed by a presentation by Katie Marisic, Federal Affairs Manager of the Brewers Association.
The MBG also thanked founding, and retiring board members, Gary Bogoff from Berkshire Brewing Co., Dan Kenary from Harpoon, Ned LaFortune from Wachusett and Rob Martin from Ipswich Ales for their 10-years of service to the association.
The 2018 board member elections brought in new recruits, Jeremy Cross from Battle Road Brewing, Warren Dibble from Harpoon and Maureen Fabry from CraftRoots Brewing Co. as well as reseated Keith Sullivan from Medusa Brewing Co., and Sam Hendler from Jack's Abby Craft Lagers.
Each will bring their own unique perspective and skills to the table and we look forward to a successful and growth filled 2018.
Cheers to #MABeer,
Executive Director of the MBG
