Brewers from around the state today are visiting Beacon Hill to speak to legislatures about the growing impact of the craft beer industry in Massachusetts.



Members of the Massachusetts Brewers Guild are currently there, hoping to talk about how the 44 craft brewers that are members of the guild employee more than 1,300 people.



In addition, they plan on talking about new legislation that would change how the wholesale laws are currently written.



Currently, brewers cannot switch wholesales without extremely costly and lengthy legal wranglings.



House Bill 999, would allow a brewer to leave a wholesaler. The brewery would still have to pay the wholesaler, but it would not lock a brewery into a business relationship that hurts them.



The brewers expected to be in attendance today include Jim Koch of the Boston Beer Company, Rom Martin of Ipswich Ales, Caitlin Jewell of the Somerville Brewing Company (Slumbrew), Abraham Seckler and Brandon Rougeau of 3 Beards Beer Company, Chris Tkach of Idle Hands Craft Ales, and Jon Curtis of the Tap Brewery.



“These meetings with local officials will give us a chance to make sure people know more about our industry, our economic impact locally and the promise of further job creation statewide,” said Martin, the president of the Mass. Brewers Guild said.
