Allow breweries to sell own products, says MP
Independent MP has proposed that changing the word ‘beer’ in the Alcohol Act could make it possible for breweries to sell all their products
Magni Laksáfoss, independent member of Parliament.
 

Breweries should be allowed to sell all their products, argues MP Magni Laksáfoss.

According to the Alcohol Act, breweries are only allowed to sell beer with a maximum alcohol content of 5.8%.

Laksáfoss has proposed that by changing the word ‘beer’ in the Alcohol Act to ‘own production’, this requirement may be bypassed, and it could make it possible for breweries to sell all their products, which in the case of the two Faroese breweries, Okkara and Føroya Bjór, includes beer, cider, gin, vodka and aquavit.

The proposal is expected to be heard in either of the two Parliamentary sittings scheduled for next week, on Wednesday and Thursday.
