Funding provided by Michigan Spirits Association (MSA) and Tito’s Handmade Vodka


Hello members,

Michigan Licensed Beverage Association (MLBA) is on a mission to provide financial relief for members during the COVID-19 shutdown of bars and restaurants. With the help of a $10,000 donation from Tito’s Handmade Vodka and Michigan Spirits Association (MSA), we have the support we need to give $100 to 100 members. Thank you, Tito’s and MSA!

“I would like to commend MSA and Tito’s for this donation,” said MLBA Executive Director Scott Ellis. “The spirits industry is still doing quite well in Michigan, due to off-premises sales, and it’s great to see these two groups giving back to those who have been greatly impacted by the shutdown. It is very much appreciated.”

Winners were chosen based on responses to the MLBA COVID-19 Economic Impact Survey.

“Every little bit helps when many establishments have zero revenue coming in,” Ellis said. “Thanks again to MSA and Tito’s.”

We wish everyone the best during these trying times. If you need assistance with anything or have any questions, please give us a call or send us an email.
