The Kentucky Beer Wholesalers’ Association (KBWA) has been the voice for the state’s beer wholesaler and distributor industry since 1945. Our mission is to provide leadership and service for our members through a favorable economic, social and legislative environment.
Our members operate in communities across the commonwealth and play an important role in ensuring consumer access to an impressive array of fresh, safe and reliably consistent beer products on retail store shelves and in their favorite bars, restaurants and other venues.
We are dedicated to educating policymakers, licensees and the public about the societal value of the current three-tier system in regulating the manufacturing, independent distribution and retail sale of alcoholic beverages.

Wholesalers work hard. They deliver.BEHIND EVERY BEER
