Representative McGrady was recently interviewed by the Raleigh News & Observer on his efforts to modify how much beer can be sold by a brewery.
From the News & Observer’s YouTube page:
Ten years ago, North Carolina legislators revamped beer consumerism — by “popping the cap” on the alcohol limit in brews sold here. Raising it from 6 percent by volume to 15 percent meant more, diverse and higher-gravity choices on shelves and menus. For many, that stirred interest in the craft of beer making.
Today, the Tar Heel State is the South’s beer production champ, with roughly 140 breweries or brewpubs bottling and barreling porters, saisons, IPAs and what-have-yous from the mountains to the coast. But now, for some, state laws are serving up challenges and creating focus on a different kind of cap they say is limiting business.
