There’s great news for Georgians who love beers/booze and the manufacturers that make them, because Governor Nathan Deal has signed to pass Senate Bill 85. Without getting too into the details about the bill, the main idea is that this bill allows breweries and distilleries to sell alcohol to customers. Should you be excited? Of course! It’s a big deal for anyone who likes to kick back and relax.
This is the very first time that this has been allowed in the state, and it’s definitely a game changer. Until now, breweries and distilleries were selling tours and giving samples with the experience, but now they can actually sell the product. There’s no doubt that the profit will be high along with the overall happiness of the locals with all the beer they can buy. It’ll also be interesting to see how it affects commercial sale of craft beers in stores.
Unfortunately, the bill won’t be in full effect until September in a few months. Until then, we can all get excited to revisit our favorite spots in town like Monday Night, Orpheus, and Creature Comforts just to name a few.
So when September rolls around, be sure to stop by a local brewery/distillery and celebrate!
