Brewery Taprooms on the Horizon 7 years 2 months ago #1

After years of campaigning and pre-budget submissions, Labour have taken note and are introducing a bill that will see breweries allowed to sell their own beer.
This is a major step forward for the industry and consumer alike.

Here's the press-release.[/url:2587562a]


Interestingly, a lot of the points they make are pretty much what was in our latest pre-budget submission. I'm guessing it was read then <!-- s:D --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- s:D --> .

Great stuff and nothing too radical either so hopefully won't ruffle too many feathers (famous last words).

Also, good to see it includes spirits and ciders as well. Although perhaps there is some slight irony in this line...

"For example, can you imagine a situation existing in Italy, France or Spain, where tourists visiting vineyards are prevented from purchasing wine at the end of their tour?"

Their bill has left out the wine makers in Ireland!

6pm is very limiting. Rules out working people Mon-Fri and holding any sort of festival. 10pm would be a lot better.

Who did AK work with to draft this?

So breweries will be allowed serve beer at 10am on a Sunday, but a pub cant?
