As many raise their glasses, bottles and pitchers to celebrate Super Bowl Sunday, most will probably never ask what maze of regulations their beverage had to overcome to end up on their table.  Want a talking point at your super bowl party tonight? Attorney Keven Danow offers a rich discussion of the regulation of the import of alcoholic beverages under the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB.)

In this clip, Keven discusses whether an individual can be a wholesaler or a distributor from the comfort of their own home. Taken from Lawline’s program entitled “Monitor Thy Drink: Alcohol Import Regulations Under the TTB (Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau).
