October 30, 2017 Published Works

An article authored by Jonathan Dunitz entitled "Man Drinks Beer Then Vomits Blood Because of Cleaner in the Tap Line (How to Avoid These Types of Lawsuits)" was published by Craft Brewing Business on October 30, 2017. The article describes several instances in which individuals suffered severe injuries as a result of caustic cleaning solution that had not been properly flushed from beer lines. In one of these instances, the victim was awarded a $750,000 verdict. Jonathan then lays out a series of tips to help brewers effectively manage their risk and reduce the chances that they will find themselves in a similar situation and, if the worst does happen, how to properly insure the brewery business to effectively manage risk exposure.
