Beer Law: What Brewers Need to Know

Today, we hear from Attorney John Szymankiewicz from the Beer Law Center in Raleigh, NC. John’s last name belongs in the finals of a spelling bee, so we’ll just refer to him as John S.

In our discussion, John discusses the legal concept of force majeure and what brewery owners should know about this contract clause which is included in most supplier and wholesaler agreements. How is force majeure being used during the pandemic? What are options for breweries?  John S. has the answers.

John has written book on beer law which is a helpful resource for brewery owners. He covers topics ranging from federal licensing to labeling to buying and selling your business.
