A compromise on a bill that could mean a spending and infrastructure bonanza for craft breweries in South Carolina will likely pass this year and will bring a major California-based craft brewer to the state, lawmakers said Tuesday. Sen. Luke Rankin, R-Conway, said at a House-Senate conference committee meeting that he had been told by Commerce Secretary Bobby Hitt that Stone Brewery, a large, popular craft brewer, would expand its operations to the state if the bill is passed. Senators said that Stone is looking at the Greenville, Spartanburg and Charleston areas. A company spokeswoman, however, said the brewer has not decided on a location. The bill that would ease restrictions on craft brewers is a game-changer for the fledgling artisan brewing industry in the state.
