On Monday, July 24, the Massachusetts Brewers Guild held its New Brewery Bootcamp at the new Springdale Barrel Room in Framingham. The well-attended event offered a series of presentations from experienced brewers and other professionals on topics ranging from “What I wish I had known” to accounting basics to wastewater treatment. Jen Garner, of Bowditch & Dewey’s Real Estate Department, moderated a panel on brewery leases, and yours truly spoke on employment law basics for brewers. In all, it was an informative and engaging day. The event served as an example of the Guild’s efforts to help brewers establish themselves and thrive in Massachusetts.
