What are beer franchise laws?

The 21st Amendment to the U.S. Constitution gives states the primary responsibility to regulate alcohol. State franchise laws are a key component of state alcohol regulations; they address the relationship between beer suppliers and distributors. Beer franchise laws provide balance and guidance for brewers and beer distributors.

Beer franchise laws support:

1)    Consumer Choice – Product Diversity

2)    Brewer Access – Distributor Independence

3)    Public Safeguards – Responsible Sales
