Eight members of the New Jersey State Legislature—along with Hammonton Mayor Steve DiDonato, recently toured the facilities at Kramer Beverage in Hammonton. The visit was an opportunity to allow New Jersey elected officials to observe the complex daily operations of South Jersey’s largest beer wholesaler, and to discuss Governor Phil Murphy’s legislative proposals affecting New Jersey’s current liquor license laws.
Visiting Legislators included: Assemblyman William Moen Jr., Senator Edward Durr, Senator Mike Testa Jr., Assemblywoman Claire Swift, Assemblyman Donald Guardian, Senator Jean Stanfield, Assemblyman Michael Torrissi Jr., and Assemblyman Brandon Umba.
“Governor Murphy has made liquor license reform a high priority for his administration and has proposed significant changes to the alcohol industry in New Jersey,” said Mark Kramer, President of Kramer Beverage. “This was a terrific opportunity for us to share our thoughts with local elected officials on the proposed reform and give our recommendations for changes that could have a positive impact without requiring a complete overhaul of the current system of issuing liquor licenses.”, he added.
Kramer Beverage is proud to be an industry leader, sharing helpful insight and recommendations for the distribution tier of the New Jersey alcohol industry; and they are part of The Coalition for Responsible Alcohol Licensing—a partnership that includes the Beer Wholesalers Association of New Jersey, the New Jersey Wine & Spirits Wholesalers Association, and the Licensed Beverage Association. The goal is to provide a commonsense approach to modernizing liquor laws.
