Bill would allow Vt. craft brewers to ship beer

MONTPELIER, Vt. -

A state senator wants to let Vermont craft brewers ship beer straight to customers. Sen. Kevin Mullin says that would put brewers on par with wine producers.

The measure passed the Senate and is under consideration by the House.

Mullin says the bill would allow Vermont to continue to capitalize on the growing microbrewery market.

"If you look around the state, whether distilled beverages, whether it's beer, whether it's wine, Vermonters are making incredible products," said Mullin, R-Rutland County.

The bill adopts pieces of five bills initially introduced separately earlier this year, and would also allow sampling of products from multiple manufacturers in one location. Mullins says the legislation is the beginning of what he believes is a significant growth industry in agrotourism.
