Last night on Channel 13 News (Salt Lake City) I saw a story about homebrewing. The City of South Salt Lake, Utah is pondering putting a law on their books making it illegal to homebrew! The news interviewed one of the employees at our local Homebrew Supply Store (The Beer Nut) in Salt Lake City. According to Utah law, one needs a "License" to manufacture any alcoholic beverage. But, nobody will issue this license to homebrewers... So technically us Utah homebrewers are breaking the law, even though it isn't enforced. Selling of homebrewing supply's and equipment is not illegal (thank God!) What is funny about this is, the City of South Salt Lake is riddled with prostitution, murder, meth labs etc. You'd think the city would want to go after the real criminals instead of picking on us simple homebrewers... Fortunately I don't live in South Salt Lake! Just another example of oppression behind the "Zion Curtain" !
