Gov. Cuomo Signs Additional Legislation to Strengthen State’s Craft Beer Industry
Governor Andrew Cuomo sign two bills to further modernize New York's Alcoholic Beverage Control Law.
With the new bills wineries, breweries and cideries will be able to sell any New York-made farm alcoholic beverage by the glass at their production facility or off-site branch store. Currently, according to the law, they can only sell products by the glass that they produce onsite.
Governor Andrew Cuomo said:
These new laws further break down artificial barriers and help increase exposure to New York's world class beer, wine, cider and spirits, which will help this already booming industry grow further. As I've said many times, when New Yorkers buy and support New York products, everyone wins.
With the new laws, sales will increase for the New York homegrown manufactured products and further support New York's manufacturing business.
