Senate Republican Leader Tom Kean said that legislative efforts are needed to ensure that New Jersey’s microbrewery success story can continue following new rules imposed by the state’s Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control that would stifle the burgeoning industry:

Sen. Tom Kean touring the Cape May Brewing Company’s facilities in 2015 while promoting three bills to support NJ’s rapidly-growing craft brewing industry. (

“I’ve worked closely with our microbreweries for the past decade to eliminate Prohibition-era laws that prevented this innovative industry from growing in New Jersey as it has in so many other states.

“Our efforts to modernize the state’s brewery laws have been successful beyond belief, leading to an economic success story that few could have imagined when we started. We shouldn’t allow a State regulatory body to turn back the clock after everything we’ve accomplished.

“I look forward to working with the Governor and the bipartisan legislative leadership to enact a solution that will allow New Jersey’s microbrewery industry to continue growing and prospering.”
