In another thread Julia Lauren (@JuliaLauren) of the Brewers Association discussed how the Brewers Association is addressing craft beer quality and she provided this link as an example: https://www.brewersassociation.org/educational-publications/best-practices-guide/ The Brewers Association provides to their members a 20+ page brochure entitled Best Practices Guide to Quality Craft Beer. There have been some suggestions from BAs on how to address certain aspects of craft beer quality: @MNAle posted: “…perhaps the Brewers Association should define a "quality seal" that to qualify, the brewer must demonstrate (via an audit?) that they have certain minimal quality controls in place.” @pat61 posted: “In terms of having out of date dreck on the shelves what the Association should do is work out member agreements for standards of behavior for the distributors, such as removing out of date beer from retailer shelves and keeping beer cold from brewery to retailer. As a trade association they could use their influence to get distributors to sign agreements that include responsibility for the care and handling of the beer after the distributor gets it. Having a year old IPA on a store shelf is not going to help any brewer.” I think the issues concerning craft beer quality is of such importance that a separate thread specifically on this topic is needed. I am hoping that some other BAs can provide suggestions on how they think the beer quality of craft beer can be improved and hopefully these suggestions will be helpful to the Brewers Association in their goal to improve the quality of craft beer. Cheers!
