Good news for Craft Brewers

The Tackling Alcohol-fuelled Violence Legislation Amendment Bill will allow for the sale and sampling of craft beer at promotional events.

On a date yet to be determined, small craft beer producers that hold a producer/wholesaler liquor licence in Qld (or equivalent liquor licence in another State) will be allowed to sell craft beer at promotional events such as food and wine festivals.  These small producers will be able to apply for a “craft beer producer permit” to:

  • sell their craft beer for takeaway, at a promotional event – or
  • supply their craft beer as a free-of-charge sample at an event
