Prohibition ended almost 90 years ago, but thanks to antiquated shipping laws many breweries and consumers are still stuck in the 1900’s. The time has come to legalize beer shipping, giving consumers like you access to more breweries and a wider selection of beer. The more than 9,500 small and independent craft brewers located in every state make great products, but most have a hard time finding distribution, particularly outside of their immediate home markets, making it difficult to get the beer you want!
Do You Want…
a six pack of the beer you had on vacation?
the holiday seasonal beer from that famous brewery?
the special release beer you saw on social media?
You likely can’t get any of those beers unless you are at the brewery or in the local area where the beer is brewed.
You can ship wine in almost every U.S. state but you cannot ship beer.
Direct-to-consumer shipping changes the equation
Direct-to-consumer shipping gives you access to greater choice and selection. By making direct-to-consumer shipping legal you will get access to 1000s of brands of beer and help breweries connect with the people who are most enthusiastic about their product.
Even in states where beer can be legally shipped breweries have limited choices about who can ship their product. The United States Postal Service (USPS) Shipping Equity Act is federal legislation that would allow the USPS ship beverage alcohol products in states where private carriers can legally ship. It would have a far-reaching effect on your local craft breweries by allowing for increased competition and making it easier for beer lovers in rural areas not served by private mail carriers to enjoy great craft beer!
