Share Post

Amended in the Senate following House passage, H.B. 541 changes the definition of “small brewery” to allow annual production up to 12,000 barrels (from the current 10,000) and would include the production of all affiliated companies and beer purchased from any other beer producer to be sold by the brewery. The bill also increases the tax on breweries producing between 10,000 and 20,000 barrels annually.
