What Coverages Does Craft Brewery Insurance Include?
The specific coverages that a particular craft brewery package contains will depend on the terms and conditions of the individual policies contained within the insurance package. Most policies contain common commercial insurance coverages such as:
Business Property Coverage, which may protect a microbrewery’s building, equipment, supplies, beer stock, furniture and fixtures
Business Interruption Coverage, which can help compensate for lost income if business operations are interrupted by a covered claim
General Liability Coverage, which might cover a lawsuit if a microbrewery is held responsible for a person’s injury or physical damage to property

In addition to these common coverages, breweries may need more specialized coverages, like:
Tank Collapse Coverage, which might help cover the costs of processing water if a tank collapses
Tank Leakage Coverage, which may cover lost beer stock if a tank leaks (either during or after brewing)
Restaurant Property Coverage, which can provide several coverages for a tasting room, restaurant, or pub on a brewery’s property
Other policies that a brewery might need include commercial auto coverage, workers compensation coverage, employment practices liability coverage, and cyber liability coverage. These are sometimes purchased within a craft brewery insurance package, and they’re sometimes acquired outside of a brewery-specific package.
