New Jersey Governor Orders Breweries to Stop Delivery

When New Jersey bars and restaurants were forced to shut down for on-premise consumption on March 16th, those businesses, as well as some of the state’s craft breweries, began offering delivery.

On Wednesday, Governor Phil Murphy’s office informed breweries they had to stop delivering beer directly to consumers, according to a report in the Star-Ledger. Craft breweries in the state have said they are trying to overturn the order.

Bradley Beach, New Jersey-based Bradley Brew Project began offering delivery last week but announced it would stop.

Although the state governments of New Jersey, New York and Connecticut have moved in lockstep since last week, the New York State Liquor Authority has not placed the same limitation on that state’s breweries, according to New York State Brewers Association executive director Paul Leone.
