The West Virginia Beer and Wine Wholesaler’s Association (WVBWA) is an organization of twenty-eight independent, family-owned beer distributorships. The Association promotes the common interests of the membership with respect to state and local governmental agencies, the general public, retailers, consumers and suppliers in a manner consistent with sound business management practices, compliance with laws and regulations, and fair and ethical trade practice.
West Virginia beer distributors are, in various ways, an agent of the state in the oversight of the supply, distribution and retail sale of beer in West Virginia. These family-owned and operated businesses are proud to employ close to 900 West Virginians at an average salary of $55,000 and to provide our communities and our state with $35.5 million in tax revenue annually. Additionally, West Virginia beer distributors are vital members in the communities they serve by investing in a variety of charitable, civic and benevolent purposes.
