Ohio House Votes 79-7, Eliminating ABV Cap!

Updated 2:10 p.m.

May 18, 2016 may go down as one of the greatest days in Ohio craft beer history

At 2:10 p.m. today, the Ohio House passed Sub. HB 37 with a vote of 79-7 which will eliminate the ABV cap on beer brewed and sold in Ohio.  This puts Ohio in line with a majority of States and will help continue to grow craft beer in Ohio.

Over the past four years, Ohio has done a tremendous job at amending and enacting new law benefiting Ohio's breweries.  The passage of Sub. HB 37 is yet another example of why Ohio is a great place for craft beer!
