In mid-month June, the Sacramento Business Journal contacted Simas & Associates, Ltd. for assistance on a story it was writing regarding surprising things about California alcohol licensing laws. Simas & Associates, Ltd. is known as one of the leading professional licensing law firms in California and provides statewide alcoholic beverage control licensing representation. The Sacramento Business Journal was looking for information about how the laws often frustrate newcomers to the industry and confuse consumers and their expectations for buying and enjoying alcohol.
On Friday, June 26, the story was published. “State alcohol laws don’t mix well with craft brewing movement,” was part of the Sacramento Business Journal as part of its print edition. Although Steven L. Simas‘s assistance was extensive, he is mentioned discussing new exceptions to the rule that producers can’t endorse single retailers and how it applies to sports arenas.
