The Beer Institute has named Ramsey Cox as director of media relations and PA.

Most recently, Cox was communications director for Washington Congresswoman Suzan DelBene and a reporter for The Hill covering the Senate.

BI chief Jim McGreevy said Cox’s job is to tell the stories about how the nation’s brewers and beer importers support the US economy and contribute to the manufacturing sector.

The trade group has been critical of President Trump’s decision to slap a 10 percent tariff on imported aluminum, which it calls a $347M tax on its membership, that could lead to the loss of 20K jobs.

It will lobby the administration for an exclusion, saying that aluminum imported for beer cans is not a threat to national security.
