HB 2411 would allow a microbrewery to contract with one or more microbreweries for the purpose of manufacturing beer or hard cider on the behalf of those microbreweries. A microbrewery would be allowed to have its beer manufactured by a contract brewer only if that contract brewer is located in Kansas. However, a Kansas microbrewery would be allowed to manufacture and package beer for a microbrewery located outside of Kansas. The bill would also allow beer manufactured by a contract brewer for a microbrewery to be returned to the manufacturing microbrewery.
