Probably no one. They probably have quite a few stills back in the woods, though.

Given it's a university town, I'm sure there are brewers in the area -- though it is still illegal to homebrew in MS.

Yeah, that's the downside of having the neighbors call the cops on you because they think you have a driveway meth lab -- once you convince the cops you're just brewing beer you still get arrested.

Actually, I've never heard of a home brewer being arrested in Mississippi, I just suspect if they came in for other reasons they'd do it to save embarrassment. It's why I tend to keep my brewing to myself.

What is this world coming to that a man can't make intoxicating beverages in his own driveway?

This is something i'd expect where i live now (Lubbock, Texas). It's the second-most conservative city in the US and still doesn't allow package alcohol sales inside the city limits. You can buy it outside the city, but there is only one game in town so you can imagine what the prices are like. Not to mention the closest town is around 110 miles away...

I might just have to introduce myself to the new neighbors with a 6-pack and an offer to help me make more. That should keep them from thinking i'm a meth lab... i hope.
