Craft Beer, Distilleries, and COVID-19
This week’s podcast is a special presentation of PRI’s recent Young Leaders’ Circle webinar, which brought together distillery owners, craft brewers, and licensing experts to examine the impact that COVID-19 has had on the production of our favorite cocktails and beers. The craft beer and distillery industry has seen incredible disruption, with states and counties opening and closing breweries almost overnight. California, like many other states, has adjusted its alcohol distribution and regulations to allow breweries and distilleries easier access to customers. Are these regulations working? Are there any changes needed? What does the rest of 2020 look like? Should temporary regulatory relief be made permanent?
