Should state allow beer tasting at farmers markets? Governor will decide

Legislation pending before the governor would permit breweries to offer beer tastings at farmers markets that are located in a nearby county.
California’s craft beer industry is exploding, with sales last year over $6 billion and the number of in-state breweries jumping by nearly a quarter in one year to 519.
