The Third Annual Washington Wine, Beer & Distilleries Law Seminar, coordinated by Stoel Rives will take place March 15th at Columbia Winery.

I attended last years seminar and I was impressed by the straight forward presentation of the confusing matrix of Washington liquor laws. Although the seminar is aimed at the beer, spirits and wine producers, it has information that is beneficial to retailers as well as producers. I still use my notebook from last year’s seminar as a resource in event planning, article preparation and in consultations. I plan on attending again this year, so I can gain a better understanding of the new Washington state liquor laws.

Liquor Control BoardThis year, all eyes are on the impact of I-1183 and the privatization of spirits. Rick Garza, Deputy Administrative Director for the Washington State Liquor Control Board, will be leading the presentation and discussion of I-1183. So this is a great opportunity to find out about the new rules and regulations – from the top!
