We are pleased to announce that Bill 530 has been introduced in the Alabama legislature. Sponsored by Representatives Barry Mask, Mike Ball, and Joe Hubbard, this important legislation would authorize breweries in Alabama to sell beer on-site for consumption off the premises.
There is a brewery experience that tourists anticipate when visiting a new brewery. This experience often includes a tour of the facility, samples of the different beers, and the purchase of their favorite sample to take home to their place of origin. When the current set of alcohol laws were originally written, there were no microbreweries in Alabama. Local wineries in Alabama have been able to sell bottles out the door for decades, and HB530 would update Alabama law to account for Alabama’s growing brewing industry.
