New Yorkers can now apply for licenses to operate their own craft beverage production centers.

 

Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced that applications are now being accepted for the operation of custom craft beverage production centers to provide space and equipment to those looking to produce beer, wine, or cider for home consumption.

The State Liquor Authority, the agency overseeing the application process, will provide new licenses to facilitate the production of homemade beer, wine and cider.
Licenses are available to both current craft manufacturers seeking to establish a secondary business at their current location, or businesses seeking to open a standalone custom homemade craft beverage production center.

“This new license provides greater opportunity for New Yorkers to make their own beer, wine or cider, while helping to strengthen an already booming craft beverage industry,” Governor Cuomo said. “This win-win-win makes it easier for hobby brewers, vintners and cider makers to hone their craft, while offering beverage manufacturers a new source of revenue that in turn helps New York farms succeed and thrive.”

The application for current craft manufacturers to add a custom manufacturing facility to their existing premises is available here.

The application for those not currently holding a manufacturing license is available here.
