My picks of beer news from around the web that you need to read and my two cents on the topics. Most of the time it’s Hawaii beer news topics, but every once in a while you’ll find other general beer related topics.
Maui Feed – A little bit of legislative news. SB3042 will be signed into law this Saturday by Governor Abercrombie at Maui Brewing Companies new Kihei brewery. This Senate bill focuses on liquor license classes and was lobbied for heavily by Maui Brewing Company’s owner Garrett Marrero. The new law removes the 30,000 barrel cap for Class 14 Brew Pub licenses, which MBC currently has, and also establishes a new Class 18 license for “small craft producer pubs.” The Class 18 license allows up to 60,000 barrels brewed per year. The removal of the 30,000 barrel cap is particularly important to Maui Brewing Company as they prepare to open a new massive brewery in Kihei and expect to exceed that capacity within the first 2 years of operation. http://bit.ly/1lDdt8c
