The Problem

Tennessee has a 5% alcohol by weight limit on what is considered "beer." With recent changes to their own beer laws by our more progressive neighboring states of Mississippi and Alabama, Tennessee now has the most restrictive and regressive beer cap in the southeast. It's time to FIX THE BEER CAP in Tennessee!

Why You Should Care

Tennessee's cap of 5% on beer:
  • Limits consumer choice
  • Discourages craft beer entrepreneurs from building their businesses
  • Limits sales tax revenues to the state and local governments

The Solution

The Beer Cap Reform Act of 2014 raises the limit on alcohol in "beer" from 5% to 12%, recalibrating a Depression-era cap that now makes Tennessee's beer laws the most regressive in the Southeast. Please take a minute to contact your state legislators to ask for their support.
