and sell. in both virginia and d.c. brewers have such limit. it would allow all tap rooms and breweries to stay open as long as local governments allow them. currently most local breweries can only stay open till about 10:00, about two hours shorter than their competitors south of the potomac. it's hoped the legislation will encourage brewers to produce more beer leading to better sales and better state economy. >> let's first try to manage the work-through and figure out loopholes, not loopholes, but kind of figure out ways we can continue to grow within the specific structure that's there. >> reporter: from rockville, john henry, wusa9. >> tomorrow could be a really good day to go out and get some beer. it's going to be warm perhaps? it will be warmer. there's a lot of fun college football games on including one
