2018 Craft Beer Webinar Series – Brewing Beer: The People Ingredient

October 18, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am PDT

During this webinar, Jason Gladfelter of the Brewery Mediation Network will outline the core of a craft brewery and the types of conflicts where mediation can be used to resolve issues.

These areas can include:

  • Strain between owner, brewer, staff and/or investor
  • Trademark disputes
  • Co-worker tension and disagreements
  • Brewery-Distributor relations
  • Brewery-Neighbor relations
  • Private/Domestic disputes of brewery employees


Jason will discuss the resolution processes and how mediation can cut costs; build and strengthen your team, and decrease the possibility of litigation.
