Craft-friendly Legislation Passes Both NY Legislative Chambers

A.B. 10122, legislation codifying recommendations arising from Governor Cuomo’s Wine, Beer, Spirits, and Cider Summit held earlier this year, has passed both legislative chambers. The measure ensures the state’s continued support of the growing craft beverage industry by cutting burdensome requirements placed on producers and rolling back restrictions regarding the marketing of craft products. The measure will provide New York manufacturers with greater opportunities to market their products and will reduce costs for small manufacturers by permitting them to produce more of their product at lower fees.
