New Ohio legislation to allow beer tasting rooms

COLUMBUS, OH (FOX19) - State law makers recently signed legislation that will allow production breweries to open beer "tasting rooms."

Similar to wine tastings, breweries will be able to sell their beer by the glass.

The new law will take effect in March.

Until then if breweries want to hold tastings,  they must get a second permit that runs about $4,000 per year.
