America’s Beer Distributors Applaud Continued Growth for Craft Beer

Kathleen Joyce - - NBWA News

The National Beer Wholesalers Association (NBWA) – which represents the interests of America's 3,300 licensed, independent beer distributors – applauds America's craft brewers for their continued growth and entrepreneurial spirit, which adds energy and excitement to the American beer industry.

According to data released this week by the Brewers Association (BA), craft brewers – as defined by BA – enjoyed continued growth during 2014 as American craft beer production volume increased 18 percent. The data suggested that craft brewers produced more than 22 million barrels of beer last year, constituting 18 percent growth for the segment.

Beer-makers cheer bill to allow increased production

Stephen Root - - 12 News

Micro-breweries all across Arizona are applauding the state Senate for passing SB 1030, which increases the amount of beer a brewery can produce and still be able to sell in its own restaurants and bars.

Bill amended to allow craft brewers to increase beer production

Ryan Randazzo - - Arizona Republic

Arizona's craft breweries have compromised on a bill that will allow them to produce more beer than currently allowed in the state while maintaining their restaurants and bars.

The Arizona Craft Brewers Guild is pushing for a change in state law this year that would clarify that the nearly 60 microbreweries could maintain restaurants and bars after exceeding a certain amount of production. Senate Bill 1030 was held up last month in a committee when the bill's opponents raised questions about its legality.

The Guild then compromised on an amendment, which passed its first test Monday while advancing unanimously through the Senate committee where it had been held up. The bill's sponsor is Sen. Kelli Ward, R-Lake Havasu City.
