News New Jersey Brewery Sues State ABC Over New Restrictions

Last July the New Jersey Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) released new restrictions on breweries in the state such as limiting the number of events a taproom can host annually, placing a cap on the number of special events a brewery can hold and prohibiting food trucks at breweries among other restrictions.

Last week, Death of the Fox Brewing, in Clarksboro, NJ, filed a lawsuit against the ABC in a state appellate court contending that the state is unjustly limiting breweries’ rights to free speech by limiting the amount of advertising they can do. The brewery also claims that the ABC didn’t follow the proper procedure to enact the rules, like going to the state legislature for approval and holding a public comment period as codified in the state law.
