Beer, Wine & Spirits


supporting business owners in their pursuit of serving refreshments to the local community.

Barron Quinn Blackwood PLLC offers a wide variety of legal services to clients in the service industries.

Our service industry clients include breweries, wineries, distilleries, distributors, and other wholesalers, as well as restaurants, bars, and other retailers. Our legal services are related to the complex array of state and federal laws and regulations applicable to the production, distribution, sale, advertising, marketing, and (perhaps most importantly) consumption of alcohol products. We are also happy to assist clients in the cannabis industry.

Our clients include large-scale, nationally recognized breweries, wineries, and distilleries, boutique bottle shops, artisan restaurants, neighborhood taprooms, and the sole proprietor working on 5-gallon batches of yarlington cider in their garage.

We provide a full suite of services, helping our clients choose and form legal entities, prepare and negotiate contracts, navigate the myriad daily obstacles of the service industry, and buy and sell licensed businesses—all within the intricate web of regulations under the federal Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) and the Washington Liquor and Cannabis Board (LCB). We’ve even been known to help our clients taste-test a drink or two when the need arises.  Cheers!
