The Mississippi Beer Distributors Association (formerly Mississippi Malt Beverage Association) was founded in 1946 and is the statewide trade association for the Mississippi independent wholesale beer distributors. The association represents 8 owner companies that operate 17 distribution facilities throughout the state. MBDA member companies employ over 1300 Mississippians with an annual payroll in excess of $75 million plus benefits. Mississippi Beer Distributors carry most brands of beer, light wine and light spirit products. MBDA provides public relations, government affairs and membership services to all of its members. The association strives to maintain a strong business-friendly but regulated atmosphere for the continued legal sales of beer, light wine and light spirit products. Currently beer sales are legal in 52 counties (wet) and in 36 cities located in 27 dry counties. There are 3 completely dry counties where the retail sale of beer is illegal. Personal possession and consumption of beer, light wine and light spirit products is legal statewide.
