Good News for Beer-In Tennessee At Least

From Libertarian Republican:

Saturday was a big day for beer drinkers in Tennessee, and for jobs. The Tennessee House approved a measure to allow strong beer sales in the State. But it's also an enticement for out-of-state breweries to re-locate to Tennessee. One in particular happens to be from California.

From the San Jose Mercury News "Lawmakers OK strong beer sales at Tenn. breweries":
The House voted 69-15 to pass the bill sponsored by Republican Rep. Curry Todd of Collierville. It passed the Senate 28-3 a day earlier.

The measure is aimed at enticing Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. to establish a $200 million plant in East Tennessee.

Alcoa is on the short list of locations being considered by the Chico, Calif.-based company, but the brewer has said that it won't remain in the running without changes in state law. The company wants the state to allow on-site sales of high-alcohol beer and the sampling of products at a taproom and restaurant that would be built alongside the brewery.

"This is a good bill, it's an economic development bill," Todd said.
Republican Gov. Bill Haslam has said he will sign the legislation.
