Here are the facts:
NC HAS THE MOST PERMISSIVE BEER LAWS IN THE SOUTH…AND IT’S NOT EVEN CLOSE!
THE CURRENT BEER DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM WORKS, IT SUPPORTS AND PROTECTS THE WELFARE OF BREWERS, DISTRIBUTORS, AND OUR STATE’S CITIZENS. WE HAVE MORE CONSUMER CHOICE AND BEVERAGE VARIETY THAN EVER BEFORE.
NORTH CAROLINA’S BEER LAWS ARE CONSIDERED A MODEL BY BREWERS IN NEIGHBORING STATES. THIS IS NO TIME TO UNDERMINE A SUCCESSFUL MARKETPLACE BY RESTRICTING FAIR COMPETITION.
SEE HOW IT BENEFITS BREWERS ACROSS NORTH CAROLINA
Changing the law to provide a special privilege would ONLY benefit three Established Brewers in North Carolina
A Special Privilege-
Would hurt all other breweries and put distributors at a disadvantage.
Could reduce consumer choices that are at an all-time high.
Would upend a fair, effective system that helps assure product safety, timely tax collection and a traceable chain of custody.
