Here’s How ESOPs Work for Craft Breweries

Today we talk about ESOPs with Rocky Fiore, Managing Director of Prairie Capital Advisors. Employee Stock Ownership Plans (ESOPs) can be a great option to reward employees and keep your brewery business independent.

Craft breweries are all about collaboration, camaraderie, and employee empowerment. Employee ownership may be a natural evolution in the craft beer culture.

Rocky oversees client engagements related to employee stock ownership plans (ESOP) feasibility and structuring, valuation, fairness opinions, mergers and acquisitions (M&A), estate planning, capital structuring and more for clients across the country.
