New York’s Governor Andrew Cuomo is continuing to help promote the craft beer, wine, and cider industry.
On Monday, Cuomo signed legislation that allows for the expansion of ‘home brewing’
According to the press release, the bill (S.1227B/A1100B) allows for the creation and operation of custom beer, wine, and cider production centers that will rent space and equipment to those looking to produce beer, wine, or cider for home consumption.
“The craft beverage industry has taken this state by storm, and more and more New Yorkers want to try their hand at making the next great Empire State beer, wine, or cider,” Governor Cuomo said.
“This new law builds upon this increased interest, supports local agriculture, and breaks down artificial barriers to allow innovation and creativity to flow, added Cuomo”
The press release says the new custom beer, wine, and cider production centers will be regulated by the State Liquor Authority.
