House Bill 1510 would allow certain brewers to sell or transfer beer to certain food manufacturers for the purpose of adding or integrating the beer into a product or recipe. The bill further provides that a product that contains the transferred beer may not contain more than 0.5% of alcohol by volume when the product leaves the food manufacturer’s facility and requires the brewer to destroy a finished product that contains more alcohol by volume than is permitted.
