The MBAA has about 25 regional districts across the Americas, with California’s members organized into two districts.

Also invited are distributor members, brewery startups and UC Davis Food Science & Technology students as well as students of the UC Davis Extension Master Brewers Program.

Representatives from PTG will be also setting up an informational booth at this event. We welcome everyone to stop by and learn more about PTG’s cost savings solutions for craft brewers. This includes seeing how Golden Road Brewery has been able to save more than 50% on their electric and gas bills with their recent installation of PTG’s B-200 system.
PTG Water & Energy: the only modular and scalable CHP system optimized for craft breweries
Controlling energy and water costs while creating the highest-quality beer is crucial for the nation’s craft brewers. PTG’s optimized systems can reduce electricity and heating costs in breweries by more than 50 percent. The systems also offer the additional advantage of treating wastewater and reducing sewer charges, which enables water to be recycled to reduce freshwater costs. PTG’s wastewater treatment systems are sustainable and non-toxic, and require no chemicals. All of PTG’s systems are easy to integrate into existing brewing processes.
The craft brewing industry is experiencing tremendous growth, led by craft brewers such as Golden Road. 2015 data on U.S. craft brewing growth released by the Brewers Association, a trade association that represents small and independent American craft brewers, showed continued rapid growth. Craft brewers increased volumes more than 6 percent in 2015, representing a total of 24 million barrels, and a 6 percent increase in retail dollar value. Combined craft brewing volumes represent a 12.3 percent market share in the U.S.
