The Ohio House now has Substitute Senate Bill 173 under consideration.

Substitute Senate Bill 173 modifies the manner in which tastings can be done at state agency stores. While this is clearly a benefit for state agency stores, it also benefits on-premises locations as well.

A more informed customer is not only better able to communicate what he or she wants, but also will be more likely to order a higher-end product. Through these state agency store tastings, consumers are being opened up to new products that may be a step-up from what they are currently drinking.
