According to Fremont Brewing’s Facebook page, “It’ll be great for Washington state to have one of ours on the Board and we know how hard she’ll fight for the interests of all independent craft brewers!”
The Brewers Association, based in Denver, works to promote and protect American craft brewers, their beers, and the community of brewing enthusiasts.
