The Massachusetts Brewers Guild, a non-profit organization which promotes the interests of craft brewers in the state, has announced a membership level for non-brewers. The guild currently has 45 brewing members, but the new membership level allows "any business or individual interested in supporting the Guild’s mission to promote craft brewing and protecting the interests of craft brewers in Massachusetts" to join.

The first associate member is Belmont's Craft Beer Cellar, a specialty beer shop that carries, at the time of this writing, 880 beers from 320 craft breweries, many of them local.

"The best way to make craft beer better for everyone is collaboration,” said Suzanne Schalow, co-owner of the Craft Beer Cellar. “We’re thrilled to join the Massachusetts Brewers Guild, and we hope to be trailblazers for all the beer geeks out there who are working hard to keep craft beer growing and cooperative.”
