HB 141 deals with craft distilleries. A craft distillery is defined as one that is “a licensed distillery that produces 250,000 or fewer gallons per calendar year of distilled spirits on its premises.
HB 141 allows craft distilleries to get their product to more people by removing restrictions on how much distilleries can sell directly to customers. The current law says customers may purchase two bottles per brand/style per year.
The freedom to sell on-site is more profitable, and it allows for customers to try the product and share it with others outside the area. HB 141 also reduces the license fee for craft distilleries by 75 percent.
HB 141 will be heard in the House Careers and Competition Subcommittee on Tuesday March 28th, 2017 at 8:00 AM
Call and e-mail the members of the House Careers and Competition Subcommittee and tell them to support HB 141 and free craft distilleries from unnecessary regulations.
