Manage episode 278831055 series 1755672
As an attorney who, earlier in her career, worked for the US federal government's Small Business Administration, Denizens Brewing cofounder and Chief Brand Officer Julie Verratti has a working knowledge of mechanisms of government that brewery owners and operators everywhere can learn from as they chart a course through this difficult and heartbreaking second wave of COVID. In this special episode, she offers a crash course in how to work with elected officials to lobby for the support that breweries need (from the federal down to the local level), and takes a deep dive into the operational shifts the brewery has put in place to continue serving customers while keeping staff safe.
