Budget Bill AB40 - Pages 1063 to 1085

Here it is. The actual bill as attached to your Budget. I have not had a chance to read it yet. Any thoughts?

Brewers Budget Bill


  1. I'm not a lawyer, and it's hard to understand due to references to other existing legislation, but it does seem to exempt producers under 300,000 barrels from the wholesaler restrictions. I don't completely understand the ramifications of the class A and class B restrictions, but it does look like breweries can still do samples and sell their own product on site (like Capital's beer garden).

  2. I just skimmed it quickly, but it looks like they fixed the language that would prevent breweries with existing Class B licenses from selling wine and spirits. I wouldn't call it good news, but it's definitely less bad.
