MMBA Annual Conference - 
A Place to Learn Video:

In existence since 1934, the Minnesota Municipal Beverage Association (MMBA) is a statewide association of municipally owned and operated on-sale and off-sale alcohol beverage facilities.


Each day, MMBA members promote moderation and control in the sale and use of alcohol beverages – while simultaneously generating income for their community.


Each year, Minnesota's municipal beverage facilities generate approximately $300 million in sales and contribute approximately $20 million in net-profits to various city funds.


MMBA's primary purpose is to help members operate their facilities more efficiently and economically through education and consultation.


In addition, MMBA serves as an information resource for the beverage industry and the general public.
