My apologies for posting something political, I just thought the nation should hear how ridiculous the anti-home brewing argument is down here! I live in Mississippi and it's illegal here too, but now I want audio of my senate to see what they are saying!


Thank You Northern Brewer and Brewing TV for letting us hear this!

I think that's fairly old audio. Still amazing, as it can't be more than a year or so.

"I think we should ban something because we don't' understand it."

Instead of learning about it and making an informed decision.

My bad. I thought it was last years, or the year before. That was some crazy audio back then too.

Yep, just ignorant people voting on superstitions and assumptions, without any informed thought process.

And we all know that Mountain Dew is much healthier than a glass of beer each day...

How can these people be allowed to vote on something they have no knowledge about? If your opposing argument is asking what it is your arguing about, you need to sit down and shut up.

Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but this is how legislatures operate. Uninformed constituencies do not magically produce informed representatives.

If it wasn't so sad for AL homebrewers, it would be hilarious.

Look up some of the audio on Alvin Holmes... and not just the stuff on beer. It sincerely frightens me that people like him were elected by a majority somewhere.
