Key Man Coverage

Since much of a brewery’s success depends on its brewmaster, we’ve also included Key Man coverage for this member of your team in Brew Guard.

Key Man insurance is an insurance policy taken out by a business to compensate that business for financial losses that would arise from the death or extended incapacity of an important member of the business.

Because a brewmaster has specialized skills that are hard to replace quickly, it’s important for a brewery to be insured in case its brewmaster dies or is incapacitated, even temporarily.

Key Man insurance offsets the costs of finding and training a replacement and compensates for the financial loss caused by the absence of a brewmaster.

We know how important it is to have the best brewing equipment and a qualified brewmaster to succeed in the craft beer business. With our Brew Guard policy, you can insure all this at a competitive price. Contact us today!
