We love our clients and apparently they love us!

Read some of our client testimonials about what it’s like to work with The Craft Beer Attorney.

Working with Candace is wonderful. She is fair, smart, tough and so easy to work with. We started with her on a challenging trademark issue as a test and she just continues to knock it out of the park. Now we use her for all our legal needs from stock issues to human resources. Just wonderful. I am so thankful we found her.

Heretic Brewing Company (Fairfield, CA)

When Tom McCormick with CCBA recommended Candace Moon for help with trademark issues, I felt a glimmer of hope.  When I actually contacted Candace, it was like the clouds parted and the sun came shining through.  Here was help at last!  Candace and her associates at The Craft Beer Attorney are so easy to work with.  The service is professional and prompt.  We just renewed our annual contract and it’s worth every penny.  Candace helps us to confidently handle trademark issues, and has been helpful with other brewery-related matters.  I would highly recommend The Craft Beer Attorney.

Candace and Stacy are some of the most responsive people we work with regardless of industry. Even though we are a tiny part of their business, they treat us as if we were just as important as the biggest client. We don’t ask for much but when we do, we get rapid response that we can trust from ABC and TTB issues to employment.

Candace and her associates have been incredibly helpful to us in so many ways.  They are responsive, knowledgeable, understanding and above all, personable.  It’s great having them as part of the Dale Bros team.

Karen McMillen

Co-Owner/General Manager, Dale Bros Brewery (Upland, CA)

I originally reached out to Candace to inquire about the trademark process to protect my breweries name. She was kind enough to explain the process, answer my various questions and give me feedback on potential business names that I was considering before I even decided to move forward with her services. She has been a pleasure to work with on my trademark and has made the process much easier than I anticipated. I plan to work with her again soon on my TTB application.  Look no further, your search is over…Candace is an excellent legal resource for all of your breweries needs.

“Sometimes the joys of brewing are mired by little things like trademarks and other legal questions. Thankfully, we have Candace to lean on. She handles our needs exceptionally well, allowing us to keep doing what we love, making beer.”

It was so refreshing to connect with Candace and her expertise.  She is very knowledgable about the ins and outs of the industry and she is great at communicating. Honestly, it is priceless to be able to have her on your team when navigating all of the components of trademarking, legalities, etc.  Everything was handled in a clear and expedient way.  Much appreciated.

Candace has been such a help to Ladyface over the last few years with each new hurdle and question we encounter as we grow. The Craft Beer Attorney has helped us with distribution contracts, alcohol law, labor law, and trademark advice. I am happy to see her firm growing along side the craft beer industry. It is refreshing to have a professional service consultant that genuinely cares about the success of individual, small businesses.

Candace has a stronghold on the front line of ABC law.  She is the industries best!

Ray Digilio

Founder + Distiller , Kill Devil Spirit Co. (San Diego, CA)

Candace has been with us ever since we started this journey. From corporate formation to naming, branding and trademark registration. She has helped us steer the most direct path and I would recommend her to anyone who wants to remove the legal headache of following their dreams and opening a brewery.

Scott Stefan

Co-founder and Assistant Keg Washer, Draughtsmen Aleworks (Goleta, CA)

There is real value for a craft brewery to work with a legal team specializing in the craft beer industry. Having not done so initially (one of the growing pains of a new brewery!), we really saw an immediate benefit of Candace’s industry knowledge base.  As a result, we have a greater level of trust in her professional advice. She’s responsive, efficient and thorough.

Brett Tate

Founder/Owner, Dust Bowl Brewing Company (Turlock, CA)

“Candace was very helpful in the pursuit of our trademark and was very diligent about the details and follow-up. I recommend her.”

Teri Fahrendorf

President, Pink Boots Society (Portland, Oregon)

We are in the process of opening a brewery and we love working with Candace.  She is THE most knowledgeable in the industry and has been crucial to our business.  Not only is she responsive but she is also personable which is appreciated when you put your heart and money into building a brewery.

Jeff and Tracey Fountain

New Heights Brewing Company (Nashville, TN)

Candace has been a wonderful asset who is extremely knowledgeable in her field. She has been a stalwart for my team and part of my success professionally helping me with 2 brewery licenses and other on premise liquor licenses.   Having her helping me understand the often convoluted laws and regulations has  helped put my mind at ease so I can focus on the important day to day work to make my businesses successful.

Scot Donovan Blair

*Hamiltons Tavern * Monkey Paw Pub & Brewery * Small Bar (San Diego, CA)

Candace has been great throughout our Trademark application process.  She and her staff communicate very well, are responsive and detail oriented.  Her pricing has been very reasonable as well. I would recommend The Craft Beer Attorney to any other business.

Joe Stewart

Partner & Operations Manager, Gaslamp Tavern & Quad Alehouse (San Diego, CA)

I decided Candace was right for me and my brewery when I received answers to these two questions: What does it cost me if you don’t know the answer to my questions? (Nothing. You don’t pay for my lack of knowledge) and Can I do my own legwork to save money? (Yes, but expect me to verify it’s correctness).

She helped the brewery incorporate, put together documents for a successful investment round, obtain trademarks and copyrights, and negotiate contracts.  I cannot imagine how difficult starting a brewery would have been without Candace’s involvement.
