Legislative Update From the Mass Brewers Guild

Here’s an update on the three major pieces of legislation that we (MBG) are working on:

  • Farmers Market Access: The legislation was approved by committee and now will be voted on by the full House. We are waiting for the legislation to be added to the House agenda- stand by!
  • Brewpub Self-Distribution: The legislation was approved by committee and now will be voted on by the full House. We are waiting for the legislation to be added to the House agenda- stand by!
  • Franchise Law Reform: Working in tandem with Sen. L’Italien, our champion and Senate bill sponsor, we are imminently working towards a Senate floor vote for S. 136. (This bill would take franchise rights out of the hands of the state and govern the relationship through mutually agreed upon contracts.)

Help us push the bill forward: Share our petition and call your State Senator to ask them to support
S. 136!
