Step 1: Download the Chapter Application

When we look to create a new chapter, we like to make sure we have a certain level of interest in the area before proceeding any further. We find that a minimum of 15 current PBS members from at least two different breweries or related beer businesses is ideal. Chapters are required to have a minimum of 2 meetings a year with each meeting having a focus on education.

International Chapters are formed as an independently incorporated legal entity which is authorized to do business in the country and region.  The Chapter is and will maintain its status as a nonprofit entity with no private individual owners or business owners.
