America's brewers and wholesalers are deeply involved in the communities in which they do business. Their long-standing commitment to reducing alcohol misuse is unparalleled. In fact, the industry alone has spent over $200 million over the past decade to fund research, public safety, education and prevention campaigns to curb alcohol abuse.
