COVID-19 and Booze: How the Pandemic is Affecting the Alcohol Industry

As COVID-19 roils America and the world, much of the focus has been on how businesses can survive in an environment of extreme social distancing and self-quarantining. The crisis presents a host of tricky challenges to alcohol producers, including changes to delivery laws, the bottoming out of on-premise sales and rising demand among consumers. Hear from R Street’s very own Jarrett Dieterle, the presidents of both the Distilled Spirits Council and the Beer Institute, as well as several craft producers as they discuss how this pandemic affects the alcohol industry and forces industry participants and policymakers to rethink how alcohol is regulated.
