ALBANY — A pair of bills from state Sen. Michelle Hinchey designed to assist the state’s craft breweries and distilleries have been signed into law by Gov. Kathy Hochul.

One bill will allow craft distillers to participate in new income-generating activities they’ve previously been barred from under state law, including the ability to conduct alcohol tastings at licensed locations and sell their spirits both on and off-premises.
