Lawmakers Looking To Help Microbreweries In Nebraska

Posted: 15 July, 2013

LINCOLN (AP) – Small, independent beer breweries could have an easier time gaining a foothold in Nebraska if some lawmakers have their way.  Three state lawmakers have introduced a legislative study to see what the state can do to help craft breweries expand.  The study will examine whether self-distribution could help startup breweries succeed. It also will examine how they’re taxed relative to larger brewers.  Last year, Nebraska passed a law that doubles the production limit of microbreweries to 20,000 barrels of beer per year. One barrel contains 31 gallons, or about two kegs of beer.
