Bill Analysis

Summary: SB 516 would create a brewer’s self-distribution permit which would allow brewers more freedom to sell their products.

Analysis: SB 516 would increase competition and allow brewers to increase the supply of their product. This moves closer to free market principles than the current system. We support SB 516.
