Brewed for A Single Purpose: To fix a Broken System.
WHY IS THIS BEER IMPORTANT?
New Jersey breweries are facing unprecedented challenges. Harsh rules recently imposed on breweries jeopardize each small businesses’ livelihood as well as the future of craft beer in the Garden State. Restrictions on tasting room events, private parties, food, television programing, and live music are making it harder for breweries, not only to grow, but to survive. Each day these rules persist, New Jersey breweries are stripped of their ability to compete in the marketplace and the opportunity to innovate in their industry.
It’s clear that these rules, supposedly meant to “balance interests”, are not balanced at all. New Jersey’s craft beer industry has grown by leaps and bounds in the last decade, only to see it now systematically stifled by artificial and arbitrary limits. These regulations stand to serve the purpose of some, but clearly not those who matter to us the most: craft beer fans everywhere.
In response to these challenges, the Brewers Guild of New Jersey has launched BREW JERSEY, a collaborative call to action for all brewery supporters nationwide. Please continue reading to learn how you can help fix this broken system!
The laws need to be changed so that New Jersey breweries can thrive again.
