Maryland Class 5 Brewery Sales Altered in Proposal

Share Post

H.B. 1283 repeals the authority of a Class 5 brewery to serve free beer samples, although a brewery may continue to sell beer for on-premises consumption under a Class D beer license which entitles the brewery to sell beer brewed at the brewery under its own trade name. The bill also specifies (1) that a brewery may not sell beer for off-premises consumption in a keg and (2) the hours during which a brewery may exercise the privileges of the Class 5 brewery license and a Class D beer license.
