New law allows Illinois craft brewers more freedom

NORMAL, IL (RFD) — Craft brewing is exploding around the state and now those operations will be better able to partner with each other to showcase their or products. Matt Porter the CEO of Destihl in Normal says an outdated law kept craft brewers from being able to work together and sell each other’s beers or ciders.

Another change in state law will allow for craft brewers to store beer offsite. Before that product needed to be kept where the brewing was being done, limiting the expansion of some operations.
