CLE International will host its annual wine, beer, and spirits law conference in Louisville, Kentucky this September 17th and 18th. This year is the program’s 20th anniversary of the wine, beer, and spirits conference and, from its lineup, it promises to have some interesting topics in beverage law. Topics include the following:
- TTB Update

- Appellations: The Next Frontier
- Cider: Complex Legal Issues

and several others.
The conference will take place at the Seelbach Hilton Hotel in Louisville and the brochure mentions that up to 14 hours of MCLE credits can be obtained (including one hour of ethics). Further, the conference falls on the same dates as the renowned Kentucky Bourbon Festival.
I attended last year’s conference and it was a great experience. This year’s lineup promises what sound like exceptionally interesting and current industry topics, as well as some great speakers.
