Craft Brewery Practice

Whether your brewery is just getting started or is a household name, the McNees Craft Brewery Practice Group provides a full range of legal services needed by any craft brewery.  Our range of experience is enhanced by a collaboration of attorneys from several legal disciplines.  This allows us to address both the routine and industry-specific legal issues that face craft breweries including, to name a few:

  • trademark and brand protection;
  • liquor law/licensing;
  • funding, venture capital and loans;
  • business planning and evolution;
  • distributor relationships; and
  • local and state government relations.

McNees attorneys are not new to the Craft Beer industry.  Our history of counseling craft breweries runs deep.  We have helped our craft brewery clients grow since craft beer was a niche product and our team of professionals and experience has grown alongside the industry.  We maintain an active role in the Brewers of Pennsylvania industry organization and are members of the Brewers Association.  Our history with a broad range of brewery clients and our current involvement in the Craft Beer industry allow us to understand the unique issues breweries face and provide practical solutions to those problems.
