Government Relations

Beer and wine distribution is a highly regulated industry in Michigan, and as such, the MB&WWA is an active participant in the public policy arena. The primary purpose of MB&WWA is to advocate for member distributors before in the legislative, regulatory, legal and public relations arenas.

The MB&WWA supports responsible regulation of alcohol which balances the sometimes competing needs of business success and jobs, with public health and safety.  As one of the oldest and most active trade association in the beverage alcohol industry, the MB&WWA is widely recognized as a resource on the history and interpretation of the laws and regulations governing the beer and wine industries.

Public officials, members of the media, academics and ordinary citizens are invited to contact us with questions about the beer and wine distribution industry and the rules and regulations which govern our activity.
