The Belgian brewerysector is an active contributor to the economic development. In Belgium this is reflected by direct and indirect employment and by the fiscal contribution of the breweries to the public revenues. Abroad, Belgian beer has become an international ambassador and takes up more and more its role as an appreciated export product.
"Belgian Brewers" is one of the oldest professional associations in the world and almost all Belgian breweries belong to it. Its most important task is to defend the general interests of the brewery sector in the economic, social and ethical spheres.
The Belgian Brewers advocate a moderate and responsible beer consumption and play an important role in raising awareness of the implications of inappropriate consumption.
