Micro-Brewery and Tap Room Insurance in Connecticut

Brewing beer might start as a love for the craft but can evolve into a very lucrative business. Believe it or not, craft brewing is one of the state’s fastest growing industries. The state of Connecticut currently has 65 breweries, with 49 more in planning or ready to start up shortly. Back in 2013, there were only 2! People like beer, and it shows. But brewing is just the beginning of the process. Ensuring your product is safe from harm, quality controlled, well stored, marketed and distributed come next. Getting people to drink it is the easy part. A huge factor (albeit unsexy) in securing and maintaining a successful business model is to protect your Craft with the right Insurance.
