The rules for breweries, wineries and distilleries in Los Angeles County changed on March 20.

Until now, breweries, wineries and distilleries weren’t allowed to serve customers if they did not have an on-site kitchen. As of March 20, Los Angeles County changed the measures. From now on, these types of establishments can reopen and welcome customers inside if they serve food. On the other hand, outdoor service can take place for those not serving food.

The measure takes effect after the PARRIS Law Firm, representing Transplants Brewing LLC, filed a lawsuit to the county in September 2020. The motives behind where that rules are discriminatory and unconstitutionally applied, as announced in a press release.

It is unclear why the county continues to discriminate against breweries and wineries. But it has finally come to its senses and revised the guidelines allowing transplants and other independent businesses to begin resuming business,” said attorney Khail Parris of the firm.

In October, the lawsuit forced the County Board of Supervisors to change its guidelines. Unfortunately, the PARRIS law firm had to file an amended complaint in order to once again bring the County into compliance with the State of California guidelines.
