Join today and help us continue to make Colorado, the State of Craft Beer!

We offer three different types of membership depending on your business model. We do not currently offer an enthusiast membership level, but instead encourage you to visit one of our member’s taprooms.

Choose from our three different membership


Any operating brewery or brewpub located in Colorado that fits the following criteria is eligible to be a member.

  • Has an active TTB Brewer’s Notice (If you do not have your TTB Brewer’s Notice yet, but are planning to open a brewery in Colorado, you can join as a Brewery in Planning.); and 
  • Is a craft brewer as defined by the CBG bylaws with a brewery in Colorado.
    • “A craft brewer is a small, and independent brewing company; meaning that it makes less than two million barrels per year and is not a party to a joint venture with or more than twenty-five percent (25%) owned by a beverage alcohol company which does not meet the Association’s written interpretation of a craft brewer.”

Brewery In Planning

Joining the Guild before you open your brewery gets you the benefits of membership while you’re making crucial decisions during your planning, buildout, personnel, and permitting processes. 

An organization that intends to open a brewery or brewpub in Colorado according to the definition of a brewery outlined above. You must also be based in Colorado and intend to join the CBG as a Brewery Member upon opening, but do not yet hold a TTB Brewer’s Notice.
