Current law exempts amateur beer brewers and winemakers from licensing. Current law also authorizes amateur beer brewers to enter their brews in organized events, such as contests, tastings, or judgings at licensed premises. The bill expands this authorization for events to winemakers who qualify for the amateur exemption. The wine portions are limited to 6 ounces and cannot be sold to the general public.
(Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
