Lawmakers want to clear regulations to make way for microbreweries in Montgomery County.

The Maryland House of Delegates wants to make it easier to get a microbrewed beer in Montgomery County.

The House passed two measures on Tuesday that would make the county more attractive for microbreweries, which specialize in making specialty beer in small quantities.

One would remove a restriction that requires them to be fully licensed restaurants before being able to sell their beer at the microbreweries. It passed on a 135-1 vote.

Another would enable breweries to distribute their own beer to licensed recipients in Montgomery County. The House approved that bill on a 135-0 vote.

The measures now go to the state Senate.
