Legislation Seeks to Allow the Sale of Beer at Farmers Markets

As in amended in Senate committee, California Craft Brewers Association-sponsored A.B. 2004 seeks to allow a beer manufacturer to sell packaged beer at a farmers market (with certain restrictions) and allows for wine to be served at a private event held on the premises of a beer manufacturer, an ability not currently allowed unless the licensed beer manufacturer has a bona fide eating establishment.

Pete serves as programs manager for the Brewers Association, with primary responsibilities in the areas of government affairs and membership programs. He joined the BA at its inception in 2005, having previously worked as programs director for the Brewers Association of America. Before coming to the small brewing industry in 2001, Pete worked for 14 years with both state and federal elected officials in Pennsylvania and Washington, D.C.
