SB294, which would legalize the packaging and sale of bottles and cans of beer greater than 16 oz. in Alabama, is on the agenda for the House Committee on Economic Development and Tourism for Wednesday, April 5. The Alabama Brewers Guild supports this legislation and some of our members will be at the hearing to speak in favor of the bill. We have also drafted a statement of support to outline a few of the reasons this legislation is good for small business in Alabama.
This bill has already passed the Senate. If it now passes this committee, it will move to the full House for final passage.
