NY: 14 local farm breweries opened in 2013

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) – More beer brewers are tapping into their potential under a New York state law enacted this year.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo says 14 local farm breweries have opened statewide as a result of legislation that took effect in January. The law created a farm brewery license for those who rely heavily on locally grown farm products for their beer. Under the farm brewery license, brewers do not need an additional permit to serve beer by the glass.
Farm brewers also can make cider.
Cuomo says that in addition to the 14 licensed farm breweries in New York, there are more than a dozen applications in the pipeline.
