The process for opening a craft beverage production business can be long and opaque, with Federal, State, and local agencies all playing important roles. But there’s a lot of legwork to be done before filing the first piece of paperwork. In this webinar, alcohol regulatory expert Kevin Anderson will talk through some of the most important early steps a founder must take to successfully launch their craft beverage business.
SPEAKER: As a Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Control Authority special agent, Kevin Anderson was on the lookout for regulatory violations, underage drinking and other vices. Today, he has switched to the business side of the alcohol industry— navigating state and federal alcohol regulations for his winery, brewery, distillery, wholesale and retail clients. After leaving the Virginia ABC Authority in 2015 Kevin became a consultant with ABC Consulting and BreweryCompliance.com, a national consulting firm based in Virginia that offers state and federal licensing assistance along with compliance and consulting services. Kevin was named 100 People to Meet in 2020 by Virginia Business.
