Kasson brewer wishes Minnesota legislature would allow six-pack sales
(ABC 6 News) – Independent craft breweries around Minnesota rallied against legislation earlier this week.
Minnesota breweries are only allowed to sell their beer to-go in 32 oz and 64 oz containers, or crowlers and growlers.
Independent craft brewers in Minnesota are not allowed to sell their beer in 12 and 16 oz cans.
A local brewer in Kasson, co-owner of Chaotic Good Brewing, thinks that it makes business harder not to be able to sell six-packs of his beer.
"So that’s somewhat limiting. Not everybody wants a half gallon. I can’t even sell the same amount of beer, you know a 4 pack of 16-ounce cans, the same amount of beer, but I can’t sell that. At least not directly to a consumer," Scott Stroh said.
Stroh has run Chaotic Good out of his backyard shed in Kasson for a few years now but business will soon be moving to an old car wash space in Kasson.
Minnesota is the only state in the country with these restrictions.
