The Three-Tier System in the US Market is Complex

The three-tier system is the legal system for alcohol distribution in the United States. The three-tier system was set up after the repeal of prohibition in 1934 and was intended to prevent control of the full alcohol supply chain by any one individual or entity – a concept called tied-house. As a result, alcoholic beverages in the United States must flow through multiple entities in the tiers.
