Yeah, states have all the power over alcohol, but the US goverment gives them incentives to follow their lead...like the whole 21 drinking age is not a national law, but if a state decides not to follow it, they get no money for highway development and maintenance...too bad the federal government didn't feel as strongly about kegs

It passed in the House Wednesday 55 to 13. It will now be considered in the Senate.

Wooo HOOO. Time to start writing your state senators. Don't email, send them a real letter or fax them. Call them on the phone too. It works! Be part of the process, then pat yourself on the back for coming out of the darkness as illegal homebrewers. Amnesty for all of you!

I'll just bump this to keep it near the top of new posts. EdWort is right on. Send them real letters and faxes.

The Free the Hops movement here in Alabama just got a law introduced here to legalize homebrewing (among other brew related laws). I wish Utah the best of luck in getting this passed. That way hopefully AL will finally de-criminalize my hobby. I'm hoping state legislators wouldn't take to kindly to being beat to anything by Utah

Wrote my senator. If the house vote was any indication, it is looking good!

I listened to the audio debate on another alcohol bill, and I didn't realize the 86% markup on liquor goes to the school lunch program. Interesting.
