As the Illinois Craft Beer Week festivities continue, the Illinois Craft Brewers Guild is asking all brew fans throughout the state to send an email to their legislators asking them to support direct-to-consumer shipping as part of Thursday’s “Day of Action.”

Illinois breweries are hoping to win the right to ship their craft beer product directly to consumers, just like wineries do throughout the state. Direct-to-consumer shipping is a big opportunity for small and independent breweries to share their beer not just in Illinois, but all over the country.
