Distilleries to get by-the-glass sales OK for other drinks
Currently, farm distilleries may sell beer, wine and cider only by the bottle and not for on-premises consumption. The legislation, sponsored by Sen. George Amedore and Assemblymember Patricia A. Fahy, is an expansion pf a 2016 bill that allows New York’s farm cideries, wineries and breweries to serve other New York-made alcohol on premises.
“We cannot express how much the passing of this bill means to us,” said John Curtin, co-founder and co-owner of the Albany Distilling Co. and vice president of the New York State Distillers Guild.
