MahoneySabol Cohosts Panel Discussion with the Connecticut Brewers Guild

MahoneySabol, with locations in Glastonbury and Essex, recently cohosted a brewer business session panel discussion at Upward Hartford. The Connecticut Brewers Guild, an organization that promotes the interests of the craft beer industry in Connecticut, cohosted the workshop. 

Tracy McKaveney, senior manager, and Kevin Harris, tax manager, spoke to approximately 35 attendees, who were mostly business owners of local Connecticut breweries. The lively panel discussion included an audience Q&A session where McKaveney and Harris answered questions about the distinctive challenges brewers face in the state of Connecticut regarding tax laws.

“We value our involvement with the CT Brewers Guild as an associate member and are happy to share our expertise in breweries and distilleries with those in the industry,” said Tracy McKaveney.  “Our goal is to provide the technical guidance clients need to make informed business decisions that allow them to create and promote a product that differentiates from the rest.”
