The Georgia House voted 152-6 Tuesday to pass legislation, HB 472, that will raise the maximum legal amount of beer that can manufactured and distributed by brew pubs.

The bill increases from 5,000 to 10,000 the barrels of beer that a brew pub can manufacture on premises during a calendar year and raises from 500 to 5,000 the barrels that can be sold to wholesale dealers for distribution to other retail outlets.

HB 472 now moves to the state Senate for consideration.
