OKLAHOMA CITY – A new bill that has been in the works for months has beer connoisseurs and microbreweries across the state rejoicing.

House Bill 1341, also known as the Beer Sample Bill,  allows breweries and microbreweries to serve free samples of their beer on site to visitors 21-years-old or older.

Those samples cannot exceed 12 fl. oz. per day, per person and can only be handed out from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.

While the samples are free to the guests, the breweries will be required to pay an Oklahoma excise tax on the handouts.

Many local breweries showed their support for the bill, as it would allow them to host tours through their facilities.

House Bill 1341 was approved by both the Oklahoma House and Senate before it was signed by Gov. Fallin this past April.
