SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - The Savannah City Council is expected to approve a new ordinance on the licensing of breweries to allow for brewery tours and tastings.

They have postponed the vote for nearly a month. They decided to hold off because when it came up for approval at a meeting on Aug. 8 because some Aldermen still had questions about private tours.

There are strict rules in Georgia that the city is writing its new ordinance to match. For example, per one-hour tour, the attendee may receive no more than 24 ounces of malt beverage or beer. Per two-hour tour, guests are limited to 32 ounces of beer. The brewery is also not allowed to charge for the tasting.
