NEW! Webinar: Introduction to Craft Beer Law with Dan Croxall


Join Dan Croxall, professor of the world's first craft beer law class, for this live webinar as he discusses the main categories of alcohol regulation with an emphasis and focus on independent craft breweries. Examine three major areas of law that impact craft breweries: the three-tier system, tied-house laws and trademarks. The three-tier system is a regulatory scheme designed to promote temperance and prevent vertical integration in the beer market. Many of the laws are antiquated and not designed for the current state of the market. Tied-house laws exist to discourage manufacturers, distributors and retailers from having undue influence over one another. These laws cover everything from business dealings to advertising restrictions. Finally, Croxall will discuss trademarks in the craft beer world—a crowded market that places pressure on naming and brands.
