VA Craft Brewer for a Day – Grassroots Advocacy Program

Program Overview

Over 275 independent craft breweries now operate in the Commonwealth, with the industry continuing to grow. The VCBG “VA Craft Brewer for a Day” program is focused on getting Virginia Congressional and State elected officials to your brewery for an educational experience. The goals of the program are to:

  • Facilitate an understanding of the challenges and priorities of small, independent craft brewers
  • Clarify our industry’s goals, interests, and economic impact to the community and Virginia
  • Build long-term relationships between craft brewers and a coalition of elected officials

VCBG will help you identify your elected officials if you do not know them. If you have a unique relationship with an elected official, the VCBG wants to maintain that informaiton to utilize as part of its “grassroots” mobilization efforts. The program guide below will help you create a professional and rewarding experience for elected officials to better understand what it takes to be a “VA Craft Brewer for a Day.”
