If you want to be a successful brewer, you’re gonna need a good lawyer.


The Mayo Law Group PLLC has extensive experience in assisting craft breweries and microbreweries in Washington State, the home to some of the best brews in the World.

From formation of your business with the Washington Secretary of State and registration with the Internal Revenue Service to applying for approval with the U.S. Department of Treasury Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (“TTB”) to receiving Washington State liquor law approval, we are your one stop for all things craft beer in Washington State.

Whether you are brewing a single beer to serve in a taproom or operating a restaurant and bar selling spirits, wine, and beer, along with your own craft brews, our knowledgeable Washington State craft beer lawyer, Mack Mayo, can help guide you through the entire process.  This includes labeling approval, restaurant permit approval, and tangential business license endorsements, including gambling, service bars, pull tabs, farmer’s market sales, keg sales and growler fills, and private events. 

We can also help you with the things you probably haven’t even thought of, including employment handbooks, internal policies and procedures, waste-water plans with the City, beer taxation (brite tanks, or otherwise), limited liability company operating agreements, profit sharing agreements, shareholder agreements, fundraising, real estate acquisitions, securities, distribution mechanisms in and out of state, brewer’s equipment financing and leases, and complex lease negotiations with your landlord.
