Public Policy Conference

The American Craft Spirits Association (ACSA) and Distilled Spirits Council of the United States (DISCUS) 2022 Public Policy Conference will take place virtually on September 21, 2022. We’re hosting on September 20th a pre-conference session with an overview of our legislative tasks and state distiller meetings. We’re looking forward to coming together across the distilled spirits industry to advocate on the policy issues impacting distillers. We hope you will join us for an important day as we speak with regulators at the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), advocating before Members of Congress and their staff on important policy issues, and then raising a glass at the end of the day to our amazing industry.

We’re excited for another successful Public Policy Conference, and hope you are too. More information will be coming about the agenda. If you have questions, please email [email protected]
