On April 17, 2012, Rep. Jim Kerr and Sen. Cheri Jahn introduced HB 12-1347 – Concerning the Limitation on the Amount of Beer a Brew Pub Licensed Under the “Colorado Liquor Code” Can Produce Annually. This summary is published here courtesy of the Colorado Bar Association’s e-Legislative Report.
Under the “Colorado Liquor Code,” a brew pub is defined as a retail establishment that manufactures no more than 1,860,000 gallons of full-strength and 3.2% beer on its licensed premises each year. The bill permits a licensed brew pub to manufacture an amount of beer in excess of the limitation if the brew pub does not sell beer at wholesale to licensed retailers. On April 19 the Finance Committee amended the bill and moved it to the floor of the House for consideration on 2nd Reading.
Since this summary, the House Second Reading was laid over daily.
