Beverage Alcohol Law — Breweries, Wineries, And Distilleries

Pennsylvania is one of the most highly regulated alcohol markets in the country. It is also flush with potential for craft beer, regional vintners and distilleries. Beer, wine, and liquor are all agricultural products, so it is not surprising that they would thrive in a state like Pennsylvania. Navigating the various state and federal regulations, the three-tier distribution system, the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board, and the various overlapping governmental agencies is a daunting task. The consequences of a mistake, unfortunately, can literally send your business down the drain.

I am attorney Justin P. Miller, a long-time homebrewer myself, and my several hundred bottle wine cellar attests to my love of the grape in its finest form. My legal counsel in this area includes personal passion as well as in-depth knowledge of application of the law to breweries, wineries and distilleries.
