Many in the south are all for liberty and freedom from government so long as it doesn't offend their morals.

Your idea of what's moral is irrelevant to them, because like most all do-gooders, they know what's best for you.

Best of luck to you good folks in Alabama.

Ya this has nothing to do with AB at all......../sarcasm off
http://www.blogaboutbeer.com/2008/01...nheuser-busch/

This fight is not at the public vs. elected official level...It is the micro brewer/craft brewer vs. mega-giant brewer top dog.

Do not like that link? Try renting "Beer Wars".... AB alone last year gave more money in political contributions than tobacco and firearms combined.....now that that has sunk in....Do you really think that AB wants you to brew your own after they have lined the pockets of the officials??????

It is going to take an act of divinity to get this fixed.....but I hope it does get fixed. BTW I do not allow AB products in my house unless it is to cut the top off a keg to make a keggle (legally obtained)....now that is irony....

And do not think Miller/Coors is my buddies or yours either.....

Isn't AB foreign owned now?

Foreign companies influencing America politics and laws?

Didn't someone recently warn us about such foreign intrusion in Americans' lives?

We have the runoff for the Republican nominee for governor coming up fairly soon. I've been researching the candidates as much as possible to figure out their positions on beer-related legislation. I haven't received specific word from the Bradley Byrne campaign, but the report is that Byrne does enjoy a good beer on occasion and would be generally inclined to support beer legislation (or at least not oppose it), though he (understandably) won't make a public statement on it. That fits pretty well with my impression that he is much like Riley on a lot of issues.

I had heard rumors that Robert Bentley was pretty well opposed to alcohol legislation, and one of my friends reported that he came out solidly opposed to Free the Hops at the Governor's Forum in Huntsville back in March. He was reported to say that he would vote against any alcohol legislation no matter what. I just managed to get through to someone at his campaign headquarters to confirm those statements. She said that Bentley is opposed to having the state involved in the alcohol business as a competitor to private industry (i.e. he doesn't like having government run ABC stores). However, she said he is completely opposed to legalizing homebrewing and to making it easier to manufacture wine in your home. She said he was also opposed to the Free the Hops bill and his position has not changed.

I know that alcohol issues aren't the only ones that go into our decisions on how to vote, but on the beer issues that are important to many of us, Byrne is by far the better candidate.

Good info, being a pretty dirty liberal at heart, I mostly vote Dem anyway. If they'd just leave our damned guns alone, I'd probably even register as a party member but the bastards just won't quit trying to screw with my right to own cool guns.
