Advisory Board

CBD's advisory board, also called the Truth Squad, consists of over 30 industry executives from craft brewers, distributors, retailers, and allied industry people. The identities of members of the Truth Squad are kept confidential in order to promote candor.

Duties include monthly phone/email conversations regarding a variety of topics and issues that are important to the craft beer industry. Additionally, truth squad members share their sales and pricing data, although all information is kept confidential and aggregated to spot trends.

Also, Truth Squad members call or email us on issues of interest that arise in their markets.

If you are an industry executive and are interested in joining the beer industry Truth Squad, send me an email at , and you will be included in the beer industry's quest for the Truth which, apparently, sets us free.
