Thanks for the signatures guys. Forward this to anyone else you might know. The face of beer in America is getting better and better. I'm going to a new brewpub in Dallas this weekend for a try. If all goes well with the Texas legislature this year then possibly I will be able to go into some of the local microbreweries and grab a case or keg of some of my favorites.

See the recent laws passed in Alabama allowing this. They were modeled and lobbied based on similar laws in other states. Check out the organization "Free the Hops" to get some good arguments in favor of changing the law. In state grass roots support is the best way to exert pressure on the legislature.

This allowed them to make the case for a penalty.

There is a web site that I could not open yesterday that gives updates on the current push for this in Texas. The bill is HB 660. You can go to the site and sign THEIR petition which is at the state level, to support the bill.

They can if they want to, they just choose not to, because the federal goverment witholds the funds needed to maintain the interstates. There is no national drinking age by law.

You mean you want to see state laws change to be more like this:

Yes but they don't and it's been backed by the SC to do that. A federal law on brewing could be the same.

Yes, but I would much rather the laws and funds be at the State Level. If you want to live in a world completly controled by people in DC, I feel sorry for you.
