Dying in committee, Senate Bill 163 sought to: authorize manufacturers of malt beverages to sell or donate malt beverages they produce, subject to certain limitations and conditions; provide for direct donation of malt beverages by brewers and brewpubs to certain charitable events; provide that sales for consumption off the premises are not subject to a daily maximum; permit small brewers to sell a limited quantity of malt beverages at wholesale; and provide a mediation process for discontinuance of agreements between small brewers and wholesalers.
