Well said, DocBrown! Alabama is certainly an interesting place to live. I've lived all over the country and like everyplace, it's got its strong points and week points. I also see the libertarian streak increasing in strength over the past 10 years. Let's hope that desire to not be over-regulated gets applied to our beer soon.

Hopefully, this Libertarian streak will extend into the mid-term elections.

if you read the bill, it only strikes out 2 or 3 words from the existing law.. changes it from 6% ABW to 13.9% ABV... not sure why the change from weight to volume..
but this seems to be a pretty easy law to let fly in my opinion..

if i remember correctly, hasnt the senate alreayd OK'd the house's version of the bill?

?

I can't imagine living somewhere that didn't allow beer over 6%. I think my head would explode.

No kidding. I brew because I want to. I end up giving away 90% of what I make because I honestly drink a lot of craft beer. I just can't imagine not having it there, waiting all the time, just for me.

It's not like we're completely deprived of craft brew. The vast majority of craft beer is below 6% alcohol. There are some very good beers we can't get, but there are a lot that are available.

Then stay out of Utah, i don't want to read about exploding heads in the local news cause Utah doesn't allow beer to be sold in stores over 3.2% ABW. You can go to the state liquor store (if you are lucky to have one near you) and choose from a crappy selection of warm beers (they do not refrigerate their beers) that are higher in percentage though.

Actually, I'm guessing it is about 50/50 these days. Beer continually gets bigger and bigger.
