America’s Craft Beer Community Springs into Nashville

This spring, the craft brewing community will take over America's Music City for the Craft Brewers Conference and BrewExpo America®, presented by the Brewers Association, from April 30 to May 3. Joining them at this year's conference is Verrill Dana's own Jonathan Dunitz who will co-present, "From 1 Barrel to 1,000: Managing Risk from Start-Up to Rapid Growth," with GHM Insurance Agency's James Sanborn, Macpage's Brad Weller, and Maine Beer Company's Daniel Kleban.

As your brewery grows, so do the number and types of risks you need to be attuned to. Whether it's a new lease for a larger facility, a bad batch of beer, contracts with glass manufacturers and canning contractors, or an accident in your tasting room, this Craft Brewers Conference session will cover how to best protect yourself from business and economic risks that can hobble your business. Session attendees will also discover how your insurance coverage can keep pace with your brewery's rapid growth and how to set up bookkeeping from the start to establish solid footing, so you can focus on what you do best - brewing great beer.

The annual event, intended for both brewpubs and packaging breweries from across the country, includes educational sessions and a trade show displaying the latest and greatest products and services. Take advantage of early bird pricing and register for the conference online here before March 13.

Whether or not we will see you in Nashville, we are always happy to discuss this important topic with you. Contact Jonathan Dunitz with any questions.
