I had the pleasure of sharing my knowledge of beer and wine law with a fantastic group of UO law students last night. We had an engaging discussion of the practice of law in this space, common legal concerns of businesses in this space, and current issues of interest.
I’d like to thank my co-panelists for their contributions to the success of the event:
- Marcus Reed , General Counsel of Craft Brew Alliance,
- Jeff Tobin, Owner and Brewmaster of Mazama Brewing, and
- Kelly Routt, OLCC Wholesale & Manufacturer Compliance Specialist.
I also enjoyed sticking around for the next panel and appreciated the experience and hard earned wisdom shared by Mark Williams—the owner of Oregon Wine Lab—and Edward Fus—owner of Angel Vine. After listening to Mark and Ed, I’ll be stopping by their tasting rooms soon and recommend you do the same!
I hope that the students got as much out of the presentations and Q&A sessions as I did.
