Living Large! Brewers Association Board Announce 2018 Appointments

Not this year’s Executive Board Members

An organization is only as good as the people who represent it…That’s why we’re so pleased by the Brewers Association’s Board of Directors 2018 at-large appointments.

Larry Horwitz, brewmaster at Columbus, Ohio’s Four String Brewing and Jose Mallea, the co-owner of Miami-based Biscayne Bay Brewing have been appointed by the BA board of directors to join the 2018 board as at-large representatives.

They replace outgoing at-large representatives Tom Dargen from Gordon Biersch and FreeTail Brewing’s Scott Metzger who both did a great job.

Rob Tod, board chair, Brewers Association (and a really fun guy) waxed poetic about the latest Board of Directors appointees, who will be ‘living large’ and representing the BA for the next two years (unless they seriously screw something up)…

“With the craft brewing community continuing to grow to more than 6,000 small and independent craft brewers across the country, it is imperative for the board to continue to reflect the interests of brewers of all sizes and ensure that even the smallest voices are heard.

In the face of many exciting opportunities and challenges, this is a dynamic time to be a small and independent brewer. I look forward to working alongside our new colleagues to continue making this a great industry, both for those who work in it and the beer lovers who get to enjoy it.”

Horwitz and Mallea will be joined by newly elected brewpub representatives Tim Brady from  Brattleboro, Vermont’s Whetstone Station and Julie Verratti from Silver Spring, Maryland’s Denizens Brewing when the new board term begins on February 21st
