Noble Ale Works in Anaheim hosted a policy discussion with legislative leaders on behalf of the Orange County Brewers Guild

On Wednesday March 23rd Noble Ale Works in Anaheim hosted a legislative discussion with local elected official's staff to discuss the important role that craft breweries are playing in Orange County. Noble Ale Works CEO Brian Rauso serves as a board member on the Orange County Brewers Guild, an organization dedicated to educating the public of the great American tradition of craft beer and its rich brewing culture in Orange County. In recent years, the Orange County Brewers Guild has grown from 3 breweries to more than 20 breweries, and is continuing to increase membership.

Representatives attended the meeting on behalf of Congresswoman Mimi Walters, Congressman Ed Royce, Senator John Moorlach, Senator Bob Huff, Assemblyman Don Wagner, Assemblyman Matthew Harper, OC Supervisor Shawn Nelson, along with the event coordinator Katie Pringle from Curt Pringle & Associates and Noble CEO Brian Rauso

Scott Koehm, a representative from the City of Anaheim's Planning and Building Department, attended the event and explained that the success of these up and coming breweries is largely due to the City's early partnership and desire to become a destination for fresh, locally-brewed craft beers, much like in San Diego. This cooperation between the City and local small businesses in the region is promoting a unique opportunity for economic growth while simultaneously building on a current trend that is likely to become permanently adopted in our Orange County culture. The experience of meeting with friends or associates and enjoying the newest concocted brew of the week is a social one that many locals have become quite fond of.
