The Virginia Craft Brewers Guild (VCBG) was formed in December 2010 to create the best environment in the United States for independent craft beer businesses to manufacture and headquarter their operations. The VCBG organizes craft brewers around four primary focuses: government affairs, marketing & tourism, farm breweries, and quality & operations. The VCBG members also have access to business services focused on training, retaining great talent, reducing operational costs, and maximizing profitability and productivity.  The VCBG is an affiliate of the Virginia Manufacturers Association (VMA) and the state affiliate of the Brewers Association.
