The Building Breweries Podcast Hosts The Craft Beer Attorney

Episode 16 – Beer Law 101 with The Craft Beer Attorney (San Diego, CA)

Although she isn’t in charge of a brewery herself, Candace Moon, Esq., founder of The Craft Beer Attorney, certainly helps others find their place in the craft beer industry. While trudging through law school, Candace tended bar at Hamilton’s in California. There she learned just a little about the beverage industry. Soon after, she was inspired to open her own firm based around breweries.

Starting in 2009, Candace worked alone at the firm. After hiring three more attorneys, Candace’s firm supports over 200 craft beer breweries cut through the red tape. Now in 2016, she is heading up The Craft Beer Attorney Coalition and speaking at conventions around the country.

Candace joins me to talk about her firm, the many legal issues of the industry, trademark law, unique cases, and her book “Brew Law 101.”

A note to listeners:

If you know of a brewery with an interesting origin story or background, or if you are a brewery and think you have a story to share, I’d be more than willing to learn more about it! Please reach out to me on twitter or Facebook.

As always, I would be grateful if you subscribed to Building Breweries on iTunes and left me a rating/review. It would go a long way in helping me grow and attract other breweries.

Michael, host of Building Breweries, is brand new to all of this (and he'll admit that every second he gets). Building Breweries is his first podcast project and hopes to see success in the future with more interviews from founders, owners, and brewers in order to learn more about the folks responsible for the good things we drink.
