Craft Beer Attorney Coalition Member Awarded 2017 Brewers Association F.X. Matt Award

Washington, D.C. — The Craft Beer Attorney Coalition (CBAC) is proud to announce that our Mississippi state member, Matthew McLaughlin of McLaughlin, PC and the Mississippi Brewers Guild was awarded the 2017 Brewers Association F.X. Matt Defense of the Craft Brewing Industry Award at the annual Craft Brewers Conference that took place April 11th-13th in Washington, D.C.

This award is named for the late F.X. Matt, president of the F.X. Matt Brewing Co. in Utica, N.Y., from 1980-1989, and a tireless and outspoken champion for the small brewing industry. Nominations are open to individuals who have given aid and support to the causes of small, independent brewers, and by doing so have supported the Brewers Association’s goal of vigorously defending the craft beer industry.

This is the second member of the CBAC that has been awarded this prestigious award. In 2015, Brook Bristow of Bristow Beverage Law and the South Carolina Brewers Guild also received the F.X. Matt Defense of the Craft Brewing Industry Award.
