Introducing Brewbound Voices


In an effort to continue providing our audience with valuable insight in areas like finance, investment, branding, marketing, sales, and distribution, we’re excited to introduce “Brewbound Voices,” an avenue for experts to contribute their knowledge to our readership.

Kicking off the initiative is Mike McCann, the chairman of Kansas-City-based law firm Spencer Fane’s corporate practice group.

Since joining Spencer Fane in 1990, McCann has represented several businesses through important business decisions, mergers, and acquisitions. He most recently worked with Firestone Walker and Boulevard Brewing in their sales to Duvel Moortgat USA and represented 10 Barrel Brewing in its sale to Anheuser-Busch InBev.

In his guest column linked below, McCann shares eight critical lessons for brewery owners considering their own succession plans.

Editor’s Note: McCann will also present at our Dec. 3 Brewbound Session in San Diego, Calif., and participate in two, intimate financial planning work sessions with brewery attendees. Sign up today!
