Sounds good and I hope you are successful by using persuasion. But if not, then the way other groups operate is work to defeat them in elections. Our issue (homebrewing) wouldn't be the issue you'd defeat them on, likely, or the stand alone issue. Again, you don't have to defeat all of them, just one or two and then others begin to listen to you. I've been involved in this kind of effort and it can be effective. Of course, it takes a great deal of commitment.

That's unfortunate as well. Since I never hear anything about Mississippi and homebrewing I assume they're much further out from legalizing it.

There are cases going to bars as far north as Huntsville, as far south as Orange Beach, as far east as Auburn, and as far west as Tuscaloosa.

Nope. Sorry. The official response to this question from the guy who organized the order is as posted on Facebook:

"These aren't for sale. They are signage on a glass. Every patron who is served a beer in one will see the logo and ask why it's there. The hope is that we are able to spread the word to thousands who otherwise wouldn't know that homebrewing isn't legal in Alabama, and if they go to the website that they will follow on Twitter, like on Facebook, or sign up for e-mail notices - and we hope they will contact their elected officials in support of our cause."

Right to Brew pints are popping up all over the State now! They have been spotted in several places in Huntsville, lots of places in Montgomery, I know there are several cases in Auburn, Tuscaloosa, and a load going to Dothan and Mobile!

If you're looking to support the places that are supporting Right to Brew, check out the official Right To Brew twitter feed where pics of the filled glasses are showing up. https://twitter.com/AlaHomebrewing

If you don't have twitter and you get a Right to Brew pint, post your picture here and I'll pass it along to @AlaHomeBrewing and @Seaninthesky and they will tweet your photo.

Montgomery folks can get a pint at:
Leroy
El Rey
Pine Bar
Zelda Cigar
Midtown Pizza Kitchen
Railyard Brewing

There will be more downtown options coming soon!
