Support NJ Breweries

Dear Senator (Name) / Assemblymember (Name):
As your constituent and a fan of New Jersey craft beer, I am writing you to show my support for Senate Bill 3038 / Assembly Bill 4630 (S-3038/A-4630) which fixes outdated laws and restrictions impacting breweries in our home state. On July 1 st , 2022, every brewery in the state, including all my local favorites, were hit with a long list of restrictions on their license by the NJ Division of Alcohol Beverage Control (NJABC) which drastically changed the way breweries can operate. State bureaucrats claim that based on the laws in place today, breweries should have several prohibitions on music, TV programming and food options available on-premises to customers. These conditions have taken away from my experience as a customer at these breweries and continue to financially harm these small local businesses which have become an essential part of our community. Some of these breweries, still recovering from the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and now dealing with unstable economic times, may not survive unless
actions are taken to end these restrictions as soon as possible. S-3038/A-4630 addresses these restrictions immediately by making sure breweries can not only provide more enjoyable environments for their customers in their tasting rooms onsite, but support other local businesses, organizations, and events in their respective communities which have thrived in part because of a brewery opening in their towns. Without the changes envisioned in S-3038/A-4630, I am afraid that my ability to buy great New Jersey craft beer will become extremely limited and the several businesses that make up the state’s local craft beer industry will be hurt
forever. To make sure this does not happen, I am asking you to support S-3038/A-4630 and to become a co-sponsor of the legislation ASAP. Thank you in advance for supporting craft breweries and standing up for my rights as a consumer of New Jersey craft beer.
Reverse the 'Special Ruling' by the NJBAC!
