Brewery Law Blog | From Seattle, WA Beer Lawyers

Beer Law News & Legal Insight from the Brewery Attorneys at Reiser Legal.


RL-StackHere at Reiser Legal | PLLC, we love talking beer. If you’re thinking about starting a brewery or have a brewery law question, our team is here to help. Contact 206-905-1320 or for a free initial consultation. We serve breweries throughout the states of Washington and Louisiana, and over the years we’ve built a nationwide network of beer attorneys we trust. We’d love to help answer your questions or direct you to experienced and trusted counsel for your state-specific beer law concerns.

When we created the Brewery Law Blog, our goal was to produce a dialogue on interesting regulatory and legal issues affecting Washington state breweries. We’ve watched our beer industry grow exponentially over the past few years—with that success comes exposure to complicated legal dilemmas and increasingly oppressive legal regulation, along with a pressing need for proactive brand protection through smart trademark law practices. The Brewery Law Blog provides up-to-date information about the matters that should be troubling brewing businesses, and potential ways to address and alleviate those pressures.

Brewery Law is brought to you by Reiser Legal | PLLC, a Seattle-based law office focused on representing breweries and related industry businesses.

Offering experienced legal counsel from start-up to launch, with industry experience negotiating sophisticated distribution agreements and partnering on plans for expansion, Reiser Legal | PLLC is a full-service craft brewery law firm with a passion for what we do. The office is managed by Douglas Reiser, attorney and LEED AP, licensed in Washington and Louisiana.

Reiser Legal | PLLC provides flat-rate legal services for all craft brewers and other businesses in the beverage industry. The office provides flat-fee formation, licensing, permitting, and contract packages, with a commitment to providing first-class representation at rates start-up breweries can afford. We also recognize that with increasing competition for trademarks among beer, wine, spirits, and other beverage businesses, complete intellectual property and brand consulting is a must for every start-up brewery.

Our office also files COLA label requests and are available to help companies navigate the difficult advertising regulations affecting all alcoholic beverage businesses.
