Share Post

Signed by Governor Hickenlooper, H.B. 1042 would create an exemption from licensing requirements for state institutions of higher education that engage in manufacturing and tasting of fermented malt beverages (3.2% beer) and malt liquor (full-strength beer) for teaching or research purposes. The exemption applies only if the higher education institution does not offer its manufactured beer for sale and allows only students, employees, or expert tasters who are at least 21 years of age to taste the beer.
