As a new brewery in Minnesota, we would love to have you as a member of the Minnesota Craft Brewers Guild. Annual membership dues are $175 for the first year and $350 in subsequent years.
Benefits of Brewery membership include:
Definition of a Regular Member: A brewing organization that brews common brands, names and formulas at a brewing facility in Minnesota which it owns a majority interest in the company of which dues are paid. The member must hold a TTB issued Brewer’s Notice. The brewery must qualify for the Federal Excise Tax exemption applicable to brewers producing no more than 2 million barrels of product a year. A contract brewer who does not own a majority interest in a brewing facility in Minnesota is not eligible for a Regular membership.
Definition of an Associate Member: A contract brewing organization or minority alternating proprietorship that is not recognized as a regular member that has beer produced at a brewing facility in Minnesota. Associate members have no voting rights unless they have been elected to the Board of Directors and their voting rights are at the board level only.
