14th Annual NBWA/BREWERS Joint Legislative Conference

The 14th Annual NBWA/BREWERS Joint Legislative Conference will be held in Washington, D.C., April 25-28 at the Hyatt Regency on Capitol Hill. The Joint Legislative Conference is a premier opportunity for wholesalers, brewers and other industry representatives to advocate before members of Congress and their staffs about the issues that affect their bottom line. This marks the first Joint Legislative Conference in two years; last year’s scheduled Legislative Conference was cancelled out of respect for U.S. Armed Forces in Iraq. Because of the cancellation, the NBWA considers it vital that this year the beer industry turns out in great numbers to lobby federal legislators. Top issues facing the industry include: Death Tax Repeal Permanency, Fighting Illegal Underage Drinking, Protecting the Three-Tier System, Repealing the ’91 Federal Excise Tax on Beer, and Industry’s Commitment to Real Progress.
