CT Festival and Sales Bill Signed into Law

Share Post

Becoming law, H.B. 5331 eliminates the current wine festival permit and establishes a new festival permit for all manufacturers of alcoholic liquor (e.g., spirits, wine, and beer); allows beer manufacturers and certain Connecticut craft cafes to sell beer brewed in collaboration with another beer manufacturer (e.g., sharing a recipe or providing at least 49% of the ingredients or labor); and requires water pollution control authorities to disregard the volume of water that beer manufacturer permittees consumed when establishing or revising sewer charges.
