MISSION: The Virginia Beer Wholesalers Association (VBWA) will secure the best possible legislative, regulatory and business climate for beer wholesalers in Virginia.
Years of Service
Beer Brands in Virginia
The Three Tier System prevents vertical integration of the alcohol industry, thereby protecting competition and consumer choice from the corrosive effects of conglomerate monopolies.
We believe that Virginia should not dismantle its successful ABC system, which generates badly-needed revenue for critical public services, including education, law enforcement and mental health programs.
More than 40% of the cost of every beer is comprised of taxes ... most of them hidden. Learn more about Virginia's beer taxes and the Virginia Beer Wholesalers Association's role in minimizing those burdens.
View resources from the Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Control Authority for the wine, beer and cider industry, including forms and reports for product approval, customs and sacramental and industrial uses.
Over thirty years ago, the VBWA worked with legislators to fashion Virginia’s unique community-based litter control laws and our organization continues to help shape those regulations today.
The National Beer Wholesalers Association (NBWA) provides valuable benefits for beer distributors through proactive industry affairs initiatives and effective advocacy before government and the public.
