John L Grim, Metro Atlanta Commercial Real Estate Services
Craft beer breweries are popping up all over Georgia and taps are flowing more than ever. A new state law went into effect on September 1, 2017 that allows commercial beer manufacturers to sell directly to their customers.
Prior to Georgia Governor Nathan Deal signing Senate Bill 85 (a.k.a. the "beer bill") into law, brewers could only sell small quantities direct to their customers as part of brewery tours. To distribute product with any volume, they were forced to sell to wholesalers who then marketed to the public. This new law eliminates the middle man and paves the way for breweries to bring in more revenue and, as some believe, spur continued growth in the thriving brewery scene throughout the state.
