About Hop Law

We became attorneys because we wanted to help businesses and individuals achieve their goals. Our knowledge of franchise and alcohol distribution laws led two of our attorneys to author an article on brewpub distribution for MNBeer.com. From there, the idea for a Minneapolis brewery law firm exclusively focused on representing breweries and distilleries emerged. We have always been lawyers who like beer. Now, we are lawyers who help businesses grow and thrive within the beer and liquor industries.

Experience you can trust

One of our attorneys is also the founder and CEO of a brewery, which provides us invaluable insight; we have firsthand knowledge of what it takes to get a new brewery off the ground.

The Hoppy Lawyers want to work with businesses to find creative solutions to complex business problems, provide clients with guidance and assistance in starting and operating their businesses successfully, and most importantly, help bring great products to a growing craft beer and craft spirits market. Wherever you are in the process of brewing, distributing, or selling, the Hoppy Lawyers want to join you for a pint and a conversation about how they can help. We want to be your go to beer lawyers, distillery lawyers, distribution lawyers, or whatever lawyers you need to get your business up and running, and to keep it growing!
