Organizer Washington Beer Commission

Organizer of Washington Beer Fresh Hop Festival

The Washington Beer Commission was ratified by the Washington State Legislature on September 6, 2006 as an Agricultural Commodity Commission, becoming the first commodity commission for craft beer in the U.S.Through RCW 15.89 the state granted the commission the opportunity to produce up to 12 beer tasting festivals per year and to use the proceeds to promote and market Washington’s craft breweries. An assessment of ten cents per barrel produced by each brewery (with a cap assessment of $1,000) was also a part of the legislation. Washington state now boasts 420+ breweries and is still the only state in the nation with a beer commission.


To promote Washington beer, benefit the state’s breweries, and increase awareness and demand.
