Pennsylvania Beer Alliance

Pennsylvania Beer Alliance The Beer Biz blog: www.pabeeralliance.wordpress.com The Pennsylvania Beer Alliance, is a full-service professional trade association representing primarily the wholesale tier of distributors of malt and brewed beverages in Pennsylvania.

The members of the PBA operate in an area of business that is heavily controlled and regulated by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. As such, the alliance has an active program of monitoring and often times initiating or opposing legislation affecting our member companies. The PBA strongly supports the licensed three tier distributing system for the sale of malt and brewed beverages in Pennsylvania. In addition to a wide range of benefits for our member companies, the PBA is a valuable resource to policy makers and the public on alcohol regulation, educational programs designed to combat underage drinking and drunk driving; as well as assisting adult consumers with information on product availability in Pennsylvania.

Our PBA beer wholesale distributor members do an amazing job giving back to their local communities every year and have continued through the pandemic.

The PA Beer Alliance also wanted to do our part and so we are proud to announce a $2,000 donation to HARP, which gives emergency funds to hospitality workers during this incredibly challenging time.

Our PBA wholesale distributor members are always looking for ways to give back to their local communities. Way to go Ace Distributing!

We are pleased to announce two very generous donations by two local businesses. Once again we are very humbled by the incredible support we continue to receive from the community we proudly serve.

Yesterday we were presented with a check from Ace Distributing bringing to an end, our first and very successful fund raising campaign. This was a collaboration between Ace Distributing, Mike’s Hard Lemonade, and White Claw Hard Seltzer. COO Adam Reeder, Director of Marketing Angela Deon, members of their team, and representatives from Mike’s Hard Lemonade were all gathered to celebrate the success. Later in the day we were presented with another donation from a longtime friend and supporter of our department, Don Kissinger from Don’s Polaris and Kawasaki.

Again, thank you to everyone who has supported our new K9 team and this police department.

Beer Business Insider: Cheers to the Three-Tier

PA beer franchise laws have helped cultivate the current environment you see in the beer market today with tons of variety and choice.

Throughout this pandemic, brewers have continued to get their products to market and to the consumer through their distribution with beer wholesale distributors.

It’s imperative we protect these laws that benefit the entire PA beer industry!

We are sad to see the end of Harrisburg Beer Week but we are honored to have been a sponsor of such a great event! Cheers!

After a lot of careful consideration, we have made the tough decision to discontinue Harrisburg Beer Week.

We want to thank every single person who has helped make Harrisburg Beer Week such a success over the last six years -- sponsors, breweries, bars, restaurants, all businesses, volunteers, and every #DrinkLocal enthusiast who supported us from day one.

YOU are the reason we were able to keep going and achieve our ultimate goal of propping up local craft beer while raising nearly $200,000 for Harrisburg River Rescue and Emergency Services.

Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to push forward Harrisburg Beer Week's mission! Individually, our team continues to support our local craft beer community and to give to our friends at Harrisburg River Rescue.

Here are some ways you can help Harrisburg River Rescue:
🏌Sign-up for their Par 3 Golf Tournament at Harrisburg Golf Simulator on Aug. 29: fb.com/events/326626671678698/
👕 Buy merch -- harrisburgriverrescue.org/Merchandise_c_7.html
🎅 2nd Annual Cocoa with Santa for the Kids - Dec. 12 (pending)

THANK YOU again from the entire Harrisburg Beer Week team. We've had a blast making memories with all of you in the name of #BeerForGood!
