  1. Attention Colorado Distillers, We are in need of an attorney or consultant in Colorado that knows federal and state distillery laws really well. We are trying locate a person that can answer the questions and guide us in growing without having to pay for hours of research. There must be some kick ass attorney out there that is this person. Lastly, Dalkita does not have a lawyer on staff and did not have any answers (figured someone would likely suggest them). Any help would be appreciated.
  2. Not sure if this is the correct place to post this, but will give it a shot. Does anyone know what the rules are with regards to producing brandy for wineries in California? What can we (distilleries) legally do for them and what can a winery legally do with the brandy that is produced? Assuming the winery does not have a distilling licence, but has the license required to do TIBs with a distillery: • Can a winery age brandy on their premises? • Can a winery bottle the brandy themselves? • If not, can the producing distillery bottle for them? • What would label requirements be? • Can a winery sell brandy made from their wine? • Can a winery provide tasting samples of their brandy? (I don't believe they can.) • Can the producing distillery sell (and taste) the winery's brandy (if agreeable with winery)? Thanks, Gordon
  3. Esteemed Forum Members, I am pleased to announce that I, along with several others, have formed a core group of industry experts in order to better assist those in the craft beverage industry. This team is comprised of a body of experts that have a tried and true historical record assisting those in the craft beverage industry that has proven these members to be the best of the best. We have formed this group in order to positively promote the industry as a whole through best practices, best services, advanced education and unparalleled expertise. Given the incredible rate of growth that the craft distillery industry has experienced and continues to experience, there are a lot of people “jumping in” and trying to take advantage of the rapid expansion in order to make a fast buck. My opinion is that many of these people are diluting the industry as a whole via their lack of knowledge, lack of true understanding, and lack of experience and expertise. Becoming involved only to try and take advantage of a situation and capitalize on it only for personal gain is short sighted and I feel it is also intrinsically wrong. Many seem to be in it only for themselves and in the end only prove to be roadblocks that are a drag on the industry. They are not here to promote the craft distillery industry for the greater good; they are involved only for their own personal wellbeing. Our group of industry experts brings years of dedicated service, specialized products, and a true commitment to the craft beverage industry directly to you. One of the many benefits of this group is that we save you one of your most precious and valuable resources, time! Instead of having to spend countless hours of research trying to figure out who is reputable and who you should chose to work with, you now have a “one-stop-shop” of resources and we offer our services on a national level. While we all remain independent from one another, we work closely together as a group to best assist our clients and service their needs. You as the client though are free however to pick and chose which services you are in need of and can select to use any of us that you like. We are an expert resource group with a working knowledge of one another’s expertise and have an excellent rapport with one another. What this means to you is that if you have questions, we have answers. Our expert group is currently comprised of the following industries: Commercial Insurance / TTB Bonding / State Bonding: Aaron Linden – CIC, www.hublinden.com Product Design / Branding / Marketing: Leif Miltenberger, Hired Guns Creative www.hiredgunscreative.com CPA / Planning: Nick Shepherd & Kevin O’Brien, Irvine & Company, LLC www.irvinecpas.com Legal / Alcohol Compliance: Chris Hermann & Bernard Kipp, Stoel Rives, LLP www.stoel.com TTB Consultant / TTB Compliance: Charles Schumacher Architecture / Design / IFC: Mark Ward, Urbanadd www.urbanadd.com Distillery Operations / Product Development / Consultant: Daniel Feldman, Dodo Distilleries In closing, we are all very excited for this opportunity and the ability to bring our years of expertise and dedicated service to the craft beverage industry to all of you. I would encourage anyone reading this, from the start-ups to those of you who are well established, to reach out to any of us with any questions or comments you may have. The beautiful thing about learning is that no matter if you are new to the industry or if you have been in it for a while, things are always changing and there is always something new to learn. Let us be your resource for learning and let’s positively grow this industry together for a sustainable and successful future.
  4. Hello, I am working with my local legislator to revamp zoning rules in our county. Currently the zoning rules are quite restrictive and date from when the operating distilleries and breweries were places that produced thousands of gallons a week. Fast forward a few decades and there are no such businesses but an interest in small breweries, wineries and distilleries. I have the attention of a county legislator who has his legal staff already working on a bill for craft breweries and wineries and has reacted very positively to my request and asked if I could gather examples of other municipal governments that have altered their zoning to allow distilling in Commercial zoned properties. Current zoning only allows it in Heavy Industrial zones. What counties and cities would folks recommend and if you have specific links, I would be very grateful. Kind regards, -- Dan
  5. Hello, I'm writing to ask if any of you would be willing to share with us a completed version of their TTB application, with redacted sensitive information. We are going in front of the state senate for a hearing on an important bill on Wednesday, and feel that it would be a great visual statement to show them the length of a fully completed application, with all appendices and documentation. I know this is a lot to ask on short notice. For your reference this is bill 1293, a bill that would give distilleries, wineries, and breweries the ability to sell retail, but demands that they have been in business for three previous years. We feel that this gives unfair advantage to existing businesses and will prevent distilleries from starting up in Indiana. We need to show the legislature that the hoops we have to jump through at the Federal level are significant enough already. http://www.in.gov/apps/lsa/session/billwatch/billinfo?year=2013&session=1&request=getBill&docno=1293 Thank you, Adam
  6. We are negotiating with a building owner for a new space, and I have been asked to have our attorney research liability issues that are unique to distilleries. We don't need numbers, only the relevant provisions that would be transferrable to the lease. Assuming that this has been covered in other members negotiations previously, does anyone have any "must have" provisions that they could share? Or a sample of a "standard" lease for a distillery (like one would really exist, ha ha ha)?
