I spied a post you replied to about distributor questions. We are a year old production brewery, all draught, that self distributes and has a taproom model. We are thinking about upping our production and going to a distributor rather than self-distributing. I worry about a lot of things by going to a distributor. Cleaning lines regularly, keeping our beer cold, caring about our beer as much as any one else's, etc. Even if these things are in the contracts, from what I hear distributors regularly break the rules, so to what extent are these rules enforceable, and how to you get them to play by your rules?
Thanks in advance if you have time to reply.
