Microbrewery sales bill passes out of Senate Finance Committee

Mississippi microbreweries moved closer to being able to sell their beer on premises after the Mississippi Senate Finance Committee sent House Bill 1322 to the full chamber on Tuesday with an overwhelming 21-1 vote.

Tuesday was the last day for bills from the other chamber to be passed out of committee. H.B.1322 would allow craft brewers that brew 60,000 barrels or less annually to sell a case of beer to visitors.

Lucas Simmons, the brewmaster of Jackson’s Lucky Town Brewery, said he was elated about the bill’s passage by the committee.
