When it comes to purchasing alcohol, the United States relies on a complicated series of Prohibition-era drinking laws. To reach a consumer, a bottle must pass through several levels of distribution, getting stamped with taxes along each stop.
These laws were put in place to increase public safety, collect tax revenue and stamp out tied-house plays, but in the digital world that Covid-19 has bred, the three-tier system is more glaringly outdated than ever.
One company is looking to help small brands navigate the complicated regulations of the three tier system.
Speakeasy Co offers integrated solutions for beverage brands—including front and back-end technology, customer service, order fulfillment, warehousing, website store design, Google Analytics and customer service—while smartly integrating itself into the three-tier system.
