Kansas House Committee Votes to Increase Beer Brewing Limit

A House committee has approved a bill that would allow microbreweries in Kansas to produce up to 60,000 barrels of beer per year. That’s double the current limit. Under state law, microbreweries would have to build a separate facility and get another license if they wanted to go beyond the existing limit.

Philip Bradley is lobbying on behalf of craft brewers. He says breweries can be more efficient if they’re allowed to produce additional beer at a single facility.

“A brewmaster is not cheap, and his skilled associates are not cheap. To have to have them in three or four locations is very expensive,” says Bradley.


The committee also approved a bill that would allow microbreweries to produce hard cider.


The two bills will now be considered by the full Kansas House.
