Red Tape Cut To Allow Sydney Beer Breweries To Trade

Microbreweries in Sydney's trendy inner west will be able to trade as bars in a 12-month trial rather than just being allowed to offer tastings, the state government has announced.

Up until now, craft brewers have only been allowed to offer tastings, unless they have a special 'drink on premises' authorisation, as well as council approval.

"This trial - which also applies to producers of spirits, liqueurs and cider - will cut red tape and allow beer lovers to enjoy more of their favourite drop," Minister for Racing Paul Toole said in a statement on Thursday.
