Default Homebrew bill passes Oklahoma State House

Get a license...riiiiight. All this is, is another way to get money from someone who just wants to drink a decent beer. You can't buy decent beer cold in Oklahoma, just that mega-brewery goat piss. Anything over 3.2% has to be sold warm in a likker store (the repealing of which has been fought brutally by the liquor store lobby - never gets out of committee). Anyone want to take a stab at the over/under on the cost of that license?

Beer brewing bill passes Oklahoma House

OKLAHOMA CITY -- Oklahomans would be able to annually brew up to 200 gallons of beer for personal use under a measure passed Wednesday morning by the state House of Representatives.

Home brewers would have to obtain a state license similar to one already issued to home wineries under House Bill 2348 by Rep. Colby Schwartz, R-Yukon. The beer could only be used for personal consumption and could not be sold.

The bill passed 76-19 and proceeds to the Senate.

As I'm moving one state down into Oklahoma in a year or two I'm watching this. I'm half suspecting this license thing may be a worm in the brew kettle for some. I'd wager many people brew in their driveways without a second thought Now if this passes, nosy neighbors and overzealous local yokel law enforcement could use this license thing to be a PITA.

I grew up in the OKC metro, and this is true:

If you are under age 21 and are caught with possession of a 3.2% beer, you will be charged with "under-age possession of a non-intoxicating beverage." That's really stupid, because I got QUITE intoxicated from those "non-intoxicating beverages" on a regular basis.

I know. I got dinged quite a few times for UPNIB when I was in college.

Oklahoma has some of the most fudged-up, puritanical alcohol laws I have ever seen.

johnnyo...It isn't as much big govenment as it is big religion. Big religion controls the politics in Oklahoma more than most other states.

Baldy...where ya movin' to?

Thats pretty much BS. Its one thing to require a fishing license or a hunting license because the money goes to MAINTAINING those recreations for public land/water usage. There is no maintenance or upkeep that the Govt needs to recoup lost funds when it comes to homebrew. It doesnt matter what the Lovibond is, the only color that matters is green.

I read on High Gravity's FB page that the license would be free and apparently the Okie big brothers just wants to know who is brewing.

And prrriide, we'll be moving to Bartlesville or Tulsa or thereabouts.

The license will start out as free. Sooner or later, there will be a cost added to it.

If I lived in OK, and this thing passed. I would get a license in the names of all the pastors in the town I lived in, as well as all the politicians.

There is already licensure in place here for Wine and cider. It is free and takes 3 weeks to obtain from teh ABLE comission.

Fact is, revenues are down and this is an oportunity to acquire revenues.

If the fee is 5 or 10 dollars per annum I will pay it for the peace of mind. If it's the speculated $100 per annum, they can kiss my ass just like they have the last 3 years.

The only real advantage to this bill is that it will protect homebrew transport and releive the stigma from public functions centered on homebrew.

Hey, OP, isn't HB still illeagal in TN?
