Nancy Palmer, executive director of the Georgia Craft Brewers Guild, and Martin Smith, executive director of the Georgia Beer Wholesalers Association, praised lawmakers in both the House and Senate for their work in reaching a compromise.
“They understand the tremendous benefit this industry has on the local and state economy and are working with us to ensure Georgia remains a great state to brew beer,” Smith said.
Palmer said Smith and the wholesalers’ support has been “crucial in this process,” and said lawmakers’ “commitment to supporting the small businesses of Georgia shines through in SB 85.”
