In July of 2016, over seventy-five people attended the NH Beverage Alcohol Summit at the Mt. Washington Hotel in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire. Commercial stakeholders initiated the summit, but attendees included stakeholders across the industry including members of the NH State Legislature, the NH Liquor Commission, the NH Department of Resources and Economic Development, the prevention and treatment community, NH beer distributors, retailers, and manufacturers of beer, wine, and liquor.
The purpose was three-fold:
1. To discuss priorities for the industry across a variety of viewpoints
2. To identify actions for mutual benefit among industry players
3. To set the stage for future decisions and growth for positive impact in the NH beverage industry
