Rick Berman - It is no secret that there are many pressures facing you as a licensee as well as the entire alcohol industry. Topics such as minimum wage, interlocks, and roadblocks are only a few of the issues Rick Berman and his company confront on a daily basis. One of the Tavern League’s most popular speakers, Rick returns to update us on what is going on within the worldwide anti-alcohol movement and give us an insight on numerous issues facing the industry today.
An advocate of the alcohol industry, Mr. Berman is a constant target of the “Anti’s” and welcomes the confrontation. As a member of Rick’s American Beverage Institute (ABI), the Tavern League of Wisconsin is indeed fortunate to have a watchdog of this caliber guarding the gates. Come and hear Ricks’ comments on what is evolving in our industry, you will be glad you did.
