Georgia beer bill wins Senate passage, but supporters want more | www.ajc.com

Debate on allowing customers to take home more beer from Georgia’s craft brewers came to a head Friday: The state Senate agreed with the idea. But no one’s celebrating just yet.

Direct sales would still be banned, and the original proposal has been substantially watered down in the legislative process.

Still, the passage of Senate Bill 63 in one chamber is the most success supporters have seen in their years-long effort to expand just how much beer someone could get directly from their local brewery. It also helped the measure beat a key deadline and remain alive in the final weeks of this year’s legislative session, which is scheduled to end April 2.
