    • From Allen
      • It’s been an honor serving as president this year. We’ve had many successful events and I hope we continue to move forward and grow even more next year. The craft beer scene is evolving and so too is the guild. As a board member I will continue to be growth and innovation focused. I will make it a point this coming year to reach out and grow our industry membership in order to open the door to more opportunities. I am confident that our new leader, Chris Gray, will bring some exciting ideas to the table in 2019.
