Stone Bill Compromise Reached?

Stone Bill Decision Today?

The Greenville News has a thorough article on the Stone Bill’s latest standing: http://www.greenvilleonline.com/story/news/politics/2014/05/27/battle-brewing-today-craft-beer-bill/9623327/

Wesley Donahue has tweeted that a compromise was reached, but no news has been officially published yet. Prior to the meeting, Wesley shared that the SC Beer Wholesalers Association wasted no time working the lobby before the committee. If I were a corporations with fears of little brewers starting to think they could distribute beer on their own, I would have been playing the politicians fiercely as well. At least Wesley had something goodthough briefto say about the compromise.

If you are not already following Wesley, Brook Bristow and the South Carolina Brewers Association, then I encourage you to do so to get the latest information about the bill.

Stay tuned!
