COLUMBUS — A northeast Ohio lawmaker has reintroduced a bill that he says will encourage business growth and create more choices for brewers and consumers.

House Bill 391 would allow brewers to produce and sell beer containing up to 21 percent alcohol by volume.

According to sponsor Rep. Dan Ramos (D-56, Lorain), the bill would “spur economic development in Ohio’s growing brewing industry.”
