California’s Gold Distributors are expected to stop distributing to the state of California in January 2019 and have been in talks with other breweries to discontinue sales to the Golden State.
The California Golden State Gold Distributor, the state’s largest and most powerful distributor, announced this week that it will stop selling to the California State Beer Control Board (CBBC) and other entities in November 2019.
The CBBC, the Beer Industry Council, the California Beverage Commission, the Department of Consumer Affairs, the Liquor Control Board of California and the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) will now be responsible for determining which of their distribution licenses to grant to other breweries and beer distributors in California.
It is expected that other brewers will be able to continue selling to consumers in the state, but there are a number of reasons that the Gold Distributers will stop.
First, they have a history of having a very difficult time with ABAs, which is a legal entity created to regulate alcohol in the United States.
The Gold Distributing Company, however, is an independent brewery and has had a rocky relationship with ABA.
Second, the Gold Distillers have been very successful with small and independent breweries in California, such as The Golden Road Brewing Company, which was founded in the city of El Dorado, California, in the late 1990s.
The brewery has a history with the CBBC and is expected to continue to be a part of the ABAs beer supply system, but its a very limited market.
Third, California’s ABAs and ABAs sales laws have been a tough nut to crack, as the California Alcoholic and Beverage Laws prohibit all forms of advertising and promotion of beer in California unless the advertisement is for an approved beverage.
These laws also prevent breweries from selling to wholesalers, retailers, or other businesses that are regulated by the state.
The ABAs also do not allow advertising in public places where alcohol may be consumed.
These restrictions are designed to prevent distributors from getting their beers into the hands of minors and from making money off of consumers who might have been drinking in bars or restaurants.
But in many cases, these restrictions are used to restrict small craft breweries and craft brewers from operating.
Many breweries and distributors in the Golden States have been fighting these restrictions since the late 90s, and in order to keep up with the ABA, Gold Distributoring has had to go to court to fight the regulations.
It will be interesting to see what happens to the Gold Distribution Company, and how much they will be allowed to sell to consumers once the new law is in place.
