HB 630, legislation making it legal for homebrewers in Illinois to take part in festivals and competitions, just passed the IL Senate. The bill now goes to the governor's desk to be signed into law.

WOO HOO! TIME TO CELEBRATE!

I don't think the Governor is going to veto it, even if he could.

Now all we need to find out is when the law will take effect.

GREAT NEWS!!

Any idea if this will affect/change the growler filling at places? I know Berkot's used to have growler filling stations but were shut down by the state. Wasn't sure if that was in this bill too or if it was some other goofy IL state law that shut that down.

The governor signed it on July 5th! It's now a law!

Applications for homebrewer special events are now listed on the Illinois Liquor Control Commission website. Anybody know how much "dram shop insurance" costs?
