House Bill 3626 seeks to define “beer” as a malt liquor, which is itself defined as “any beer, ale, or other beverage made from malt by fermentation, or by the fermentation of malt substitutes, including rice, grain of any kind, glucose, sugar, or molasses, that has not undergone distillation, and containing not less than one-half of one percent alcohol by volume.” The bill would also define “brew pub” as “a brewer who also holds one or more retail on-sale licenses and who manufactures fewer than 3,500 barrels of malt liquor in a year, at any one licensed premises, the entire production of which is solely for consumption on tap on any licensed premises owned by the brewer, or for off-sale from those licensed premises.”
