Signed into law, Senate Bill 566, the South Carolina Craft Beer Economic Development Act, provides that beer sold for on-premises consumption must be produced by the brewery on its permitted premises or transferred to the brewery, subject to the following conditions: (a) the transferring and receiving breweries operate under one hundred percent identical ownership, and (b) the annual volume of beer received by a brewery does not exceed the annual volume of beer produced by such brewery on its permitted premises. The bill also increases the maximum amount of beer that brewery permitees may sell to an individual per day for off-premises consumption to eight hundred sixty-four ounces in total.
