Our mission is to help craft brewers work together to stay strong and thrive in an increasingly competitive landscape – all while maintaining complete independence. So we’ve built an alliance of strong, smart brewers who leverage the buying power of the group to save money on raw materials and operational expenses. And our movement is growing. We have 28 brewer-members representing over 600,000 barrels of buying power, and the IBA is on track to save the group hundreds of thousands of dollars on materials and operational expenses.
What’s Do Our Members Say?
Dan Barrett, Controller, Upland Brewing – 15,000 Barrels
“We’ve seen flat to declining sales and margins, coupled with increasing costs for labor, raw materials and packaging. That’s where the IBA comes in. It’s negotiated better pricing for us in a number of areas – pricing we could never have gotten on our own. These savings pay the cost of our membership many times over, and things are only going to get better as programs are added and more brewers join! This is a great time to get on board.”
