The United States Treasury Department released a report on February 9, 2022, titled “Competition in the Markets for Beer, Wine, and Spirits” (the full text may be seen HERE).  This report has the potential to be very impactful for craft breweries, distilleries and wineries as it publicly addresses many of the issues at both the federal and state level that we have been talking about for a very long time.

Bob Pease and the Brewers Association did their usual fantastic job of summarizing the document and the work still to be done in an article available to members HERE.

The Guild encourages you to read through this document in detail.  It is time very well spent.
