Connecticut Farm Breweries Closer to Reality
Bring it on farmers, I want to taste what you bring to the table. I’d like to drink it too.
Let’s get crafty. And I don’t mean what funky things can you find on Pinterest to replicate at home. I’m talking about hops, wheat, barley, and what ever interesting twist you can bring to make a tasty farm brew.
In a story covered by hartfordbusiness.com Connecticut farmers may soon have the chance to get into the business of beer-brewing.
Recently the Connecticut General Assembly passed a bill that would create a permit letting farmers produce their own beer. The special permit that’s been introduced would let farm breweries produce up to 75,000 gallons of beer a year and would enable farm brewers to then advertise their brew as “Connecticut Craft Beer” if at least 25 percent of their ingredients in the brew was grown in the state.
The bill now heads to the Senate for consideration. The Connecticut General Assembly 2017 Regular Session adjourns June 7th. Fingers crossed for final passage. My taste buds are so ready.
