Massachusetts residents have a say in the proposed legislation, H. 267, which aims to allow small brewers to terminate contracts with distributors without any prior notice.
Say No to Craft Brewer Bill encourage residents to voice their opinion against the bill. By doing so, residents will protect the beer market in the state.
This bill threatens to damage the craft beer consumer by significantly limiting new and innovative brands that are brought to store shelves.
This legislation would also hurt small craft brewers who are not able to utilize the strategic marketing expertise of the distributor to get their beer on the shelf. It would also hurt distributors who will lose the incentive to bring on new craft brands and that will cost existing jobs.
