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.
