ND Brewer Taproom License gets a DO PASS from committee, off the the full Senate

The North Dakota Senate Bill 2284 for a Brewer Taproom License has made it out of committee with a unanimous DO PASS recommendation and now it is off to the full senate for a vote.  The vote was ‘ Laid over one legislative day’ on Friday the 22nd so the full senate vote will come on Monday the 25th so contact your senators this weekend!

More information on SB 2284 and how to find and contact your senator and what to tell them is at the FMBeer SB 2284 page.

In committee, the bill was amended to allow the brewer to self distribute in the whole state of ND, not just within 150 miles of the brewery, and so that the brewer can sell their own beer off-sale so you can take home 12oz bottles up to 15 gallon kegs right from the brewery.


About Dean

I drank my share of pale lagers back in college in the 80's but I always wanted to try more, often drinking the 'dark' versions of beer as that was the only interesting thing on tap. I got into homebrewing in the early 90's meeting a lot of great people and then really started learning about beer and how to judge it. Then into the 00's I started branching out with beer and started to deal with beer education and paring beer with food which I did with some restaurants, even beating out wine in a beer vs. wine dinner. I don't try and push beer on people but if they ask questions and really want to listen, I can talk for hours about the subject. Now we come to today, and beer scene in the Fargo / Moorhead area and North Dakota is starting to boom. FMBeer was created with the help of MNBeer.com so people in the F/M area have a single place where they can find out more about good beer, from a calendar of events to lists of local breweries and bars. FMBeer is also a place to learn more about craft beer for those just branching out and a resource to come back to.
