District Mid-South is the youngest district in the nation, founded in 2007 and receiving our charter at the MBAA National conference on October 28, 2007. District Mid-South has a very rich and proud brewing culture. Regardless of the size of each brewery members work for, each member brings a unique perspective and value to the District Mid-South gatherings. Roy Johnson, of John I. Haas, Inc., will be attending the District Mid-South Fall meeting on November 4-5, 2016 in Mills River, North Carolina.
