Local craft brewing companies are urging the FDA to reverse course on a rule they say would hurt business.  Today US Senator Charles Schumer visited Rohrbach Brewing Company, one of several local breweries that typically donate or sell spent grain to local farmers.
Schumer says it's a win-win arrangement since farmers use it for livestock feed but a proposed FDA rule would eliminate it.  Schumer says that will increase costs for firms like Rohrbach, Genesee Beer, and CB Craft.
