Legislation in the Minnesota House would change the way craft breweries can do business. Representative Zack Stephenson of Coon Rapids says it would allow the five largest brewers to sell growlers – while the other 95 percent:
“They’d be able to sell six packs, four packs or smaller containers directly to customers in their taprooms. So every brewer in the state gets new flexibility out of this bill and that’s a great shot in the arm for craft brewing which Minnesotans love.”
The measure passed the House Commerce Committee on a 14-1 vote. Stephenson says he’s optimistic it will gain bi-partisan support in the Senate.
