Charlotte beer and cider as well as the local craft brewers who create it.


Membership in CIBA is open to all independent brewers and cidermakers

As an organization, CIBA will strive to educate our consumers,
retail customers, and the community about the merits of
Charlotte’s craft beer and cider industry.
