Legislation allowing breweries and distilleries to sell directly to consumers recently went into effect, loosening regulations requiring them to distribute products through wholesalers.
To find out how this affected real estate, I turned to the team representing Orpheus, Wild Heaven, Independent Distilling Company and Scofflaw Brewing: Vantage Realty.
“This legislation has everyone cautiously optimistic,” said Gene Rice, co-founder of Vantage. “It’s an opportunity for a new revenue source for breweries and for their customers to have a more bar-like experience when visiting. It may also attract more breweries to the state, thereby making Georgia more attractive for businesses.”
