Thank you for this thread. We will have to do it again next year.

Maybe I'm wrong but I don't think any of the other bills crossed over... If not they can't be voted on for this year but are good for the next session. If they don't crossover then they will die and have to be resubmitted for a new bill number. Or maybe they were amended to another bill in this session and I just don't know it.

The really good news is only a veto from Deal can stop HB 99 (He doesn't have to sign it if he fears repercussions).

Such I fine line between Alabama and us.

i know right. Unfortunately this is exactly what happened last year. Well, not exactly b/c something happened but last year similiar bills went through but were ignored. I just don't get politics in Georgia, if we ignore it, it will go away. Well at least you two posted something. I saw alot of reads but no comments. Sounds like our problem.

My employer has a lobbyist on the floor during session so I asked him to keep an eye on it for us

Good deal, I'll get to it when I have the computer in front of me. Thanks for the link. Who knows what auto correct might do. To be honest though after 15 years here were having serious conversations about moving to Washington State.

All GA citizens and lawmakers, please watch this short 1:25 video. Pay close attention at :50 and beyond.

Great link, it really is that simple. I was just reading an article in Beeradvocate on this same issue (Issue #75 Page 53 "Craft Beer in the Bible Belt; How Southern beer laws are stymying the industry"

After watching beer wars I look at the beer display in a whole new way.

Ya know, some of the laws here in GA are fairly liberal. For example, I can walk into a BP station and buy a sixer of Sierra Nevada Pale, a bottle of wine or God help us a 40 I can now go into that same gas station on Sunday...at least in Metro Atlanta and buy it. My local Kroger and Publix have excellent beer aisles. There are a lot of states that only allow sales in a liquor store. **There is a reason we can go to Kroger or CVS or BP and buy a six pack...it's because they buy it from a distributor.

The biggest annoyance here in GA, the 9th most populous state in the union regarding beer is the 3-tier system: We MUST protect the sanctity of the 3-tier system! It's so obvious that as a long as distributors and the "Big 3" get the sale, you can buy it almost anywhere. I recently read another article about Coors and their new "craft brew" division and how well it is doing (I need to find that article). I think the master plan for the large brewers is to grow these "craft brew" divisions with multiple brands so they can take up all the shelf space.

We didn't have it so bad here after all. There still 2 states that don't even allow sampling. OK is about to change that:
