A Program that Delivers

Your Craft Beverage Program insurance protection starts with our standard commercial property and general liability coverages and allows customization for your specific insurance needs.

Additional Coverages

With Stahlka Agency, one of Western New York's premier insurance agencies, you can purchase a variety of additional coverages to further customize your insurance program.

Food and beverage transportation special coverage provides two coverage options for your products: covers loss to beverage or food product while in transit when you are responsible, whether it belongs to you or to others insures you for loss to beverage or food product in a vehicle caused by mechanical breakdown of refrigerating, cooling or heating equipment; contamination by a refrigerant or freezing due to conditions beyond your control.

Product contamination and adulteration covers loss to your beverage product (on premises) when contaminated or when it contacts a substance in processing or storage equipment, affecting the quality.

Equipment breakdown coverage protects you against the sudden and accidental breakdown of your machinery and equipment. 

Commercial general liability extended liability packages several broadening liability coverage features into one convenient endorsement.

Liquor liability coverage (where available) covers claims for injuries sustained as the result of the sale, service or furnishing of alcoholic beverages. 

State and federal liquor tax bonds provide security to governmental agencies that you’ll pay the appropriate taxes after selling alcoholic beverages. 

Electronic data processing insures your computer system against loss, such as fire, wind and theft. It also covers accidental erasure of data, mechanical breakdown, employee sabotage, computer virus, changes in temperature, flood, earthquake and sprinkler leakage.

Crisis event expense coverage pays for certain expenses after a covered crisis event, including communication expenses, post-crisis expenses (except in Virginia) and loss of business income and extra expenses.

Rounding out Your Protection

Purchasing a commercial umbrella policy covers your liability for claims above and beyond the amount covered by your primary policies. And it pays for certain claims not covered by your primary policy without charging you a deductible.

Consider products from The Cincinnati Life Insurance Company. Protect your business’s key people, employees and owner(s) with whole or universal life products or term insurance. A payroll deduction program is also available with minimum participation of only five employees.
