What do you have to lose?

Don’t let an unexpected loss or lawsuit put the brewery business that you’ve worked hard to build, at risk.


Cost: $110,000, Defense Costs

A visitor to the brewery slipped and fell on a wet floor while touring the brewery sustaining a significant head injury that that left permanent damage. During the investigation it was discovered that the brewery had failed to place “wet floor” signs out warning visitor of the slippery floor, resulting in a lawsuit.


Cost: $70,000

A microbrewery employee responsible for bookkeeping had been stealing from the business by writing checks to a fake LLC in his name. Once the theft was uncovered, it was discovered that over $70,000 had been stolen. The businesses Crime Coverage covered the loss.

Equipment Breakdown

Cost: $16,565 - Property Damage, $9,365, Spoilage Damage $7,200

A power surge at a craft brewery caused an electrical breakdown of their custom-made glycol chiller system. Because the compressor needed replacement, and not the entire system, the brewer avoided a business income loss. However, there was resulting spoilage damage (foam loss) to their stored beer product due to the loss of cooling service.

Important coverages

Many factors determine what type and amounts of insurance your brewery may need. What type of operation do you run – microbrewery, a craft brewery or a large brewery? Do you serve food, host on-site events or conduct tours? While every Connecticut brewery has unique risks, there are a few major coverages that you should consider to protect you from unexpected events including:

Property Coverage

Provides protection for your building and contents against covered perils. You’ll want to be sure you have coverage for brewery equipment and other important contents such as inventory and beer stock

General Liability

Overage for third-party bodily injury and property damage claims. If a guest slips and falls during a brewery tour this coverage will protect you

Loss of Income

Protects you against changes in codes, laws and ordinances in your town that need to be addressed in the event of a loss

Spoilage & Contamination

Covers certain losses if inventory is lost due to refrigeration issues or power outages in your Connecticut brewery

Cyber Liability

Protects your brewery or distillery if you have been the victim of a cyber attack or data breach which can be very costly


Provides coverage an employee or a group of employees engage in theft, forgery or fraud that damages your brewery business

Equipment Breakdown

Look for brewery specific equipment coverages such as Tank Collapse, Tank Leakage and Restaurant Equipment Coverage if your Connecticut Brewery also has a restaurant

Workers Compensation

Protects employees who work on the premises from the costs of work-related illnesses or injuries

Umbrella Liability

Provides additional protection on top of your primary insurance against large liability claims

A tailored Insurance Program will insure that your brewery is fully protected so you can focus on creating outstanding lagers, stouts and ales. Contact one of our Connecticut Brewery Specialists today to find the best coverage for your money.
