The 2020 Minneapolis Legislative Session officially began on February 11, and with it comes some exciting news for Minnesota craft beer fans. The Minnesota Craft Brewers Guild (MNCBG) has introduced The Responsible Consumption Choice Bill, which would allow breweries and brewpubs to to sell beer in 12oz, 16oz, 750ml, and 64oz containers!
[What would this mean for your brewery and your consumers?]
Over the next few months, we will be working together with more than 150 Minnesota breweries and brewpubs to get this legislation passed.
