Sample email from Brewers to Senators
Dear Senator ____,
I’m writing on behalf of _________[your brewery or startup]__, located in _______________, to express my concern about HB1283 which is crossing over to the Senate today. It’s meant to help brewers by raising how much of their own beer they can sell at their brewery, but at a great expense. The bill cuts brewery hours significantly and outlaws a brewer’s ability to brew beer at a neighbor brewery (common in the industry). Our Brewers Association of Maryland will propose amendments to help avoid the significant job losses and closures this bill would cause, and we hope you will support the local craft beer industry.
The bill will be heard in the Education, Health and Environmental Affairs Committee, and we hope you can encourage your fellow senators to support local brewers, who are the only segment of the industry being negatively impacted by this legislation. Please share any feedback you may have on the issue.
