The Alabama Brewers Guild exists to promote a favorable legal and market environment for the craft brewing industry in Alabama.

The core voting membership of the guild consists of licensed Alabama breweries and brewpubs actively engaged in the brewing of craft beer at a facility located in the state of Alabama. Other members actively engaged in business matters involving the start-up of a new brewery in Alabama are participating, although non-voting, Associate members. Businesses in industries who do business with the brewing industry are able to join as non-voting Allied members.
