About MB&WWA

Welcome to the world of beer and wine distribution in Michigan! Michigan's family owned and local distributors are delivering a wide range of beverages to licensed retailers throughout the Great Lakes State. They're doing it through a system that emphasizes public safety and promotes moderation and responsibility.

The MB&WWA is proud to serve as the trade association representing dozens of these family owned distributors and many other industry partners in communities throughout the Lower and Upper Peninsulas.

Our primary mission is advocating on behalf of our members in the legislative, regulatory, legal and public policy arenas. Michigan distributors strongly support the state's system of alcohol safeguards, which balance consumer demands, business needs and public health and safety.

The MB&WWA is a trusted and reliable resource to policymakers, opinion leaders, media and the public. We are the go-to source for information on alcohol regulations, educational programs to combat underage drinking, efforts to reduce drunken driving, product availability, moderation and responsibility.
