Find The Right Membership For You

The Texas Craft Brewers Guild has several membership types for breweries, brewery suppliers, and Texas craft beer retailers. Read through our membership descriptions below to figure out which membership is right for you.


Membership Dues


Brewery Dues:

Based on a sliding scale that increases with a brewery's sales. Always use the previous calendar year's sales number when calculating dues (i.e. don't project what you are planning to do in the current calendar year to calculate dues).

Annual dues = $300 + ($0.20 * # of bbls sold through distribution) + ($1.00 * # of bbls sold through your taproom)

For example, if your brewery sold 2,500 bbls through distribution (i.e. through a distributor or self-distributed - in other words, not sold on your premises to a consumer), and 200 bbls through your taproom, then your calculation would be: $300 + ($0.20 * 2,500) + ($1.00 * 250) = $300 + $500 + $200 = $1,000.

Brewery dues include a component that is applied to our lobbying cost each year, and is not tax deductable. The Guild will communicate this number as a percentage each year.

Brewery In Planning Dues:

A brewery in planning pays $300/year - just the flat rate from the above calculation.

When your brewery starts to sell beer, let us know and we will update your status in our records. When  your next renewal is due, we will include your sales numbers in your dues calculation.

(Like operating breweries, a percentage of brewery in planning dues also goes to lobbying.)

Allied Trade:

$500/year

Retail:

$50/year
