Alcohol regulations have been loosened in the state of the Kentucky this year. Senate Bill 11, which took effect this past Friday, is tailored so alcohol can help support the local economy and increase traffic from out of state. Changes made range from licensing, to production, to the retail level. Some of the major developments include the integration of local option elections for voting and local ordinances for selling. Production cap has doubled for both small farm wineries and microbreweries as well. Distilleries are also able to sell higher volumes directly to the consumer and even sell alcohol on premise. Powdered alcohol is now legal too. Senate Bill 11 was aimed to help Kentucky’s economy and there is no doubt it will positively impact the state’s alcohol suppliers, distributors, and retailers.
