As of January 1, 2014, holders of a Type 01 California liquor license (large brewery) are now able to produce both apple and pear ciders. Previously cider was considered to be a wine product and Type 01 license holders were not permitted to make it.
There were a number of other statute changes that occurred on January 1, 2014. Please contact us if you have additional questions or need assistance.
The video below provides more information regarding the change in the cider provision.
