Information Regarding Assembly Bill 2172
Signed Into Law 9/24/16, Effective 1/1/17
We've included this section to help educate business owners and those who may represent any establishment the SoCal Cerveceros Homebrew Club is interested in visiting. As of January 1, 2017, it is legal in the state of California for homebrewers to bring homebrew to a public business licensed to serve/sell alcoholic beverages on premises.
As explained by the California Homebrewers Association:
"AB 2172 is a bill to allow homebrew clubs to meet and have competitions on licensed alcohol service establishments. This includes, but not specifically limited to: craft breweries and brew pubs, craft beer bars, and restaurants. AB 2172 requires that meetings and competitions held at these establishments must be done so with the express permission of the business establishment and in reserved areas."
