The New York State Assembly has passed a bill permitting the direct shipment of liquor, beer, cider, mead, and braggot to customers. Assemblymember Al Stirpe, who co-sponsored the legislation, announced its passage on Monday.

“New York boasts some of the world’s best alcoholic beverage makers,” Stirpe said. “This bill helps them reach new markets, benefiting both producers and consumers.” The bill aims to provide parity with the state’s wine industry, which has successfully used direct shipping for years.

The legislation now awaits approval from Governor Kathy Hochul.
