Running the Gauntlet: Leveraging Legal Rights and Regs in Craft Beer Startups
In Episode 3, Part 1 of the Edible-Alpha™ Podcast, Tera talks with Jeff Glazer of the UW Law and Entrepreneurship Clinic about the legal considerations of craft breweries and distilleries and how those considerations affect the profitability of food businesses. One key takeaway: distribution rights matter a great deal for breweries and distilleries and talking with a lawyer who has training and experience in the matter is the best way to protect the future of your beer brand. Another key takeaway: whether or not you are a brewery vs. a brewpub matters a great deal to regulators. Breweries get one On-Brewery premise tap room and one Off-Brewery premise tap room.
