Share Post

Companions House Bill 176 and Senate Bill 211 incorporate the recommendations relating to beer from the Alabama Alcohol Beverage Study Commission which was created to study Alabama’s laws related to the manufacture, distribution, and sale of alcoholic beverages and determine if they are competitive and consistent with related statutes across the United States. Specifically, the bills’ provisions would allow licensed brewers and brewpubs producing less than 60,000 barrels of beer yearly to directly sell up to 288 ounces (one case equivalent) per consumer per day for off-premise consumption (both draft and package beer); brewers and brewpubs would be allowed to deliver up to two donated kegs of beer per charitable or non-profit event; and language limiting the location of a brewpub licensee to a historic area would be repealed.
