The Politics Of Beer By-Products With Sen. Ron Wyden
A change in terminology for beer makers could cost them millions of dollars.
Brewers often send the spent grain from their operations to ranchers as livestock feed.
And a proposed federal regulation would require the breweries to dry the grain first, adding considerable costs to them--and potentially, to each bottle of beer.
Oregon Senator Ron Wyden co-chairs the craft brewers caucus in the Senate. He joins us to talk about the proposal and what he's doing to turn it back.
