Grassroots group commends Senate passage of pro-growth small-biz bill

PIERRE, S.D.—Americans for Prosperity-South Dakota (AFP-SD) on Thursday applauded the state Senate for passing SB 173, a bill to allow South Dakota small craft brewers better compete, grow, and prosper.

“Microbreweries are growing rapidly across the nation, South Dakota included,” said AFP-SD Deputy State Director Andrew Curley. “This bill is a win for these small businesses and entrepreneurs because it will allow them to them to brew more beer, reach more customers, and grow their businesses. We thank the senators for passing this bill and we strongly urge their House colleagues to do the same.”

Smaller businesses create opportunities for South Dakotans to work and build on their dreams. Many South Dakota entrepreneurs have joined the craft beer boom, building their own microbreweries to share their creations. This bill would allow brewers to sell directly to retailers and would raise the cap on the amount they can produce to 30,000 barrels.
