Member Savings Programs

IBA Savings Programs on Raw Materials and Operational Expenses

Here’s a summary (below) of the savings programs currently available to IBA member brewers – all from leading suppliers to the craft beer industry. 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 almost all programs (except those noted) 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).
