Here ye, hear ye! Senate Hearing on Wednesday!!

PLEASE NOTE: The hearing has been re-scheduled to Wednesday, April 6th at 5:30 pm in room 123 of the Capitol. Also the bill allowing liquor stores to sell merchandise has been added to the agenda.

Do you live in the district of a Senator who sits on the Senate Commerce Committee? Then your voice is needed! Surly is asking folks to call in and voice support for the bill that would allow them (and other breweries) to sell pints. Also on the committee’s agenda is the legislation allowing brew pubs to expand their distribution.

From the Surly Facebook page:

Surly Needs YOU! On Tuesday, April 5,Wednesday April 6 the bill to allow Surly to sell pints of our own beer at our proposed Destination Brewery, will be heard by the Senate Commerce Committee. The bill needs to pass this committee to keep moving.

We need our supporters who live in the districts of the Senate Commerce Committee members to contact them. Let them know you support SF 416 and ask them to support the bill at the April 5th hearing.

We need these 15 members to know their constituents support Surly, Minnesota craft beer, jobs and small business, so please call or email them before next Tuesday.
