I don't know if this has been touched upon yet, but Mississippi has FINALLY passed a new beer law allowing gourmet beers to be sold in state. This is huge for us in the state.

It was raised from 5% ABW to 8% ABW. This allows us to get most of the good stuff now.

Thought i'd post the news in case anyone hasn't heard yet.

What, they don't sell liquor in your state, either?

I do work down in Columbus, on occasion and was always disappointed by the beer I could find. This truly is good news!

Just in time for Bud Platinum. Texas had a law that required beers over 5% to be labeled as an ale but strangely it was overturned right when Platinum started to hit the shelves....

Except those hand-catching catfish guys, and anyone named Leroy.

Leroy? That's not even a proper name! It's like French for "The Roy" or something?

Oh, and except for any of those MS cops that I see on the TV. You know the ones, baccy chewin' spittin' and all that.

Oh yeah, and Brad Pitt! Say no more!

I know the RYP site shows it still in process, but the owner of a local Beer Bar who is active in RYP says it is everything but "official". Maybe it's a bit premature, but when I hear it from that source, it seems a bit more secure than just word of mouth. We shall see!
