Beer bill passes in S.C. House

House Bill 3218 has passed. Now Gov. Mark Sanford can sign it, and if he does, the law will go into effect immediately. This would mean that South Carolina retailers, wholesalers, bars, restaurants, and microbreweries could finally begin to sell beers that exceed 5 percent alcohol by weight (6 percent by volume). The new limit for beer would be 14 percent alcohol by weight.
Check out the Pop the Cap South Carolina blog for more information and a link to the history of HB3218:
