Default Alabama becomes the 49th state to legalize homebrew

Just saw this tweet.
"We have a bill for 2013! HB9 prefiled to repeal Alabama prohibition of Homebrewing"

Good to get a jump start on it this year. Have to feel good about that.

That is great. It is about time AL catches up! Even the White House is home brewing!

From alahomebrew.com

HB9 was prefiled by Rep. Mac McCutcheon for the 2013 Legislative Session that begins on February 5. The ALISON web site is not yet being updated to show prefiled House bills, but the bill is identical to the one that passed the House last year. The session will begin before you know it, so stay tuned and be ready help end the prohibition of Homebrewing in Alabama!

That Rep. McCutcheon is a good guy to. He went on the Brewing Network a whole back and gave a great interview.

I wish I could vote for him. He is one of the best politicians in the state of Alabama.
My rep. voted against the homebrew bill the last two years. I wrote him and let him know he lost my vote for casting his lot with people that think I am a bootlegger and a criminal.

Good for you for being proactive and writing a letter. I think it's awesome seeing people so knowledgeable about this. Good luck.

The way prohibition passed wasn't that the 'drys' convinced legislators to vote with them - they actively worked to defeat them. If you weren't right on their issue, they came into your district and supported your opponent, who usually ended up winning. Doesn't matter on what issue they won or lost, just that they were gone and the new legislator had committed to voting with the drys.

If you want to change the law, change the legislators.
