Brewery Bill Moves

Small Mississippi breweries could sell beer to customers on site under a measure moving forward in the legislature.
House members voted 93-23 Wednesday to pass House Bill 13-22 , sending it to the senate for more debate.
The measure would let a brewery sell the equivalent of two cases of 12 ounce bottles to a customer in a 24-hour period.
Breweries can now give away up to 36 ounces in samples to a customer.
Supporters of the bill say it will help breweries expand their business.
Beer wholesalers, who by law control distribution to stores, had opposed a similar measure last year.
Representative Hank Zuber of Ocean Springs says wholesalers and breweries worked out an agreement last year.
