Connecting Supply Chains
The craft beverage movement builds demand for agricultural products grown in Washington State. The Center would bring the two ends of the supply chain together to expand opportunities for both. It would convene farmers and small scale growers to align specialized interests for marketing, education, and collaboration on the product side. Then connect that supply chain to build associations of brewers, distillers, and maltsters to develop and expand markets for Washington's specialty agriculture products. This would ultimately provide a sustainable operations funding source for the Center to be supported by the industries that receive its benefit. The funding structure could emulate the new WSU Wine Science Center in Richland which is a partnership of academic, research, industry, and economic development partners.
