Law will let distilleries give product on site
Placeholder Image
Visitors touring the Dawsonville Moonshine Distillery who want to take home a bottle of the signature backwoods spirits have to leave the premises, drive a half mile away and shop at the local package store. But that will soon change after last week’s passage of what is better known as the Beer Jobs Bill in the Georgia General Assembly. Senate Bill 63 allows distilleries to charge a fee for tours, which would serve as a means to give a souvenir bottle of their product to 21-and-older visitors.
