My name is [INSERT NAME] I am [WRITING/CALLING] to ask for your support Minnesota’s craft breweries during the coronavirus pandemic. Breweries are struggling to obtain crowlers and growlers due to supply-chain delays and back-orders. Unfortunately, with limited access to these items, they could face a more immediate closure.
Please vote yes to HF 4640. You can help breweries survive by temporarily allowing breweries to sell the inventory they have on hand in 12 or 16oz cans if available. This could help move product from breweries before it spoils and free up the supply chain so breweries without equipment to sell in these vessel sizes may have more supply chain access. Breweries have indicated that they may be unable to secure crowlers/growlers until at least mid-June, potentially preventing them from selling any beer at all. These temporary changes could help breweries stay afloat until they are able to reopen.
Please consider supporting these hard-working members of our communities by voting yes to HF 4640. Please help ensure breweries will be around when the pandemic ends and we can all enjoy a local craft beer together.
I appreciate your ongoing support of Minnesota’s craft breweries.
