Member Savings Programs

IBA Savings Programs on Materials and Operational Expenses

Below is a list of all the savings programs currently available to IBA member brewers. All are offered by leading suppliers to the craft beer industry (note we can’t list actual pricing or most supplier names here, but we can share all that before you join). With most programs, brewers save anywhere from 5% to 20% over what they’re currently paying – and sometimes significantly more. Volume rebates are also part of some programs – as are other benefits like free holding of inventory and additional volume incentives. New programs are always under negotiation with other leading industry suppliers.

Remember that most, but not all programs, are available to all IBA members – both Member-Owners and Affiliates – but Member-Owners generally get better pricing and are eligible for any volume rebates (learn more about the difference between Member-Owners and Affiliates here).
