WE NEED YOUR HELP IN SUPPORTING ALL MINNESOTA BREWERIES.

May 16, 2019 – 0 Comments

CALLING ALL BEER DRINKERS: We need your urgent help to support Minnesota breweries seeking to sell growlers, crowlers, bottles, and cans from our taprooms.

On Friday, May 17, the MN House will vote on the Omnibus Liquor Bill, which includes removing restrictions that prohibit MN taprooms from offering beer in the vessel size that is most appropriate for our customers. If the amendments pass, Minnesota breweries will be able to sell beer from their taprooms in vessels between 350ml – 2L (a standard can - a European Growler). If you want to buy cans, bottles, crowlers, and growlers from Minnesota taprooms, and want breweries to be able to decide how to package their own product, help us pass this amendment!

CALL your representative and tell them to support raising the growler cap and allowing for smaller container sizes to be sold from taprooms when they vote on the Omnibus Liquor bill on Friday. Lookup your representative here: https://www.gis.leg.mn/iMaps/districts/

Sample Script:

Hello Representative __________. I live in your district and am a customer of (local brewery). I’m a fan of Minnesota Craft Beer and the impact craft brewers have on our community, tourism, and economy. I think the vessel size restrictions imposed by existing law are unfair to Minnesota craft brewers and customers. I want you to support raising the growler cap and allowing for smaller container sizes to be sold from taprooms, which would allow Minnesota breweries to sell beer from their taprooms in package sizes that make sense for their business and their customers.

Your vote can impact more than 160 small businesses in Minnesota. Just 5 minutes of your time could have a massive impact on the MN Craft Beer scene.

Cheers and thank you,
