Craft Advisory Board
Our craft partner founders and general managers meet regularly as part of our Craft Advisory Board (CAB) to drive our mission forward. Together they believe that quality is not an exception, innovation is a standard, and beer can be for everyone. Their commitment to protecting the beers, culture and qualities that make craft beer unique - paired with Anheuser-Busch’s scale and resources - fuel mutually beneficial partnerships that make it possible to share the best beers and create the best experiences.
Elevate is a SABRE-award winning, purpose-driven initiative that taps into the passion, commitment and creativity of our craft brewery partners to inspire a stronger, healthier, and more diverse beer industry. Collectively, we are united in a mission to elevate the industry by ensuring the highest quality beers reach consumers, setting the bar in sustainability, and enhancing the communities where we live, work and play. We believe that the best way to make the biggest impact is to work together and with our partners – including our teammates at Anheuser-Busch, with whom we share a mission to help create a better world.
Brewers Collective craft partners are committed to ensuring the quality, fresh beer for their customers and their communities, and are proud to share the resources they have with other craft breweries. The sharing of lab access and resources between breweries has always been a part of beer culture, and Elevate QA allows any licensed craft brewer in the U.S. to request complimentary lab support from 13 different Brewers Collective craft partners and their facilities. Through the Elevate QA website, brewers can submit their quality related questions and challenges to request assistance for tests like measuring alcohol by volume percentages, real and actual degree of fermentation, and aerobic and anaerobic microbial plating analysis.
