BA Elects New Officers to Board

Following member elections last fall, the Brewers Association seated a new board of directors at their first meeting together in late February.

The new officers are Rich Doyle, of Harpoon Brewery as Board Chairperson, Nick Matt of Matt Brewing Co. as Vice Chairperson and Mark Edelson of Iron Hill Brewery and Restaurant as Secretary/Treasurer.

John Bryant of Odell Brewing Company was selected to join Jim Koch, of Boston Beer Co., as an At-Large Member. Other new board members include: Jim Koch of Boston Beer, Greg Koch of Stone Brewing Co., Nick Matt of Matt Brewing Co. and Zac Triemert of Upstream Brewing Co.

“I am glad to have the opportunity to serve once again on the BA Board of Directors,” Doyle said. “This is an exciting time for small brewers in the United States and the BA plays a central role in supporting their growth. I am honored to have been chosen by the Board to serve as Chairman and look forward to the coming year.”
