Like most start-up breweries, our insurance was originally done quickly - without looking into all aspects, just to get it done in the most cost efficient manner. This was a mistake and cost us much more than it should have to get the coverage we needed. Paul Brian at GoodWorks Insurance was able to put together a comprehensive insurance program specifically tailored to our needs and at very competitive prices. This policy was much less than we were paying and tailored for all the needs in our industry. We highly recommend using GoodWorks Insurance for your craft beer or business insurance needs
