Referred to a second House committee after Senate passage, S.B. 665 would allow a brewer that is not a micro brewer and that produces less than 120,000 barrels of beer per year to sell its beer for on-premises consumption at up to three approved tasting rooms in the state. The current two-tasting-room limitation on beer sales for on-premises consumption would still apply to a brewer that produces 120,000 barrels or more of beer per year.
