Default Alabama house passes Beer Law

on to the senate now..

the law would allow the sell of beers up to 13.9% ABV.

Good news, maybe there's a bit in the bill to allow homebrewing...

Congratulations, and good luck to all Alabamians (Alabamites?) on getting this bill passed by the senate and signed by the governor.

Current law is 6% abv or less. Many of the available, fairly decent beers are listed as 5.9% like Sweerwater IPA & Winterhook.

Its wonderful when people that ignorant get in positions of power in any form of government. If you can't form a coherent sentence then you shouldn't be allowed to vote on bills that affect people's lives much more so than what beer kinds or beer are sold.

That's just sad. I'm actually a bit sad about the kind of person who would say that kind of thing and the position they have in our government.

And as an answer to him, I would have plenty to say about what is wrong with the beers we got. Presenting exhibit "A" wherein this is a chart showing the colors of different beers. This long list of beers we got on the yellow end represents the beers we got. The whole rest of the spectrum is the beers we don't got. Let's move on from color to taste...

Oh, when will those crazy Germans with their Mercedes realize that the beer we got drank pretty good?
