To my understanding, as of now homebrewing in Louisiana is neither legal or illegal. The good people of the AHA and BA are working to fix that problem right now with House Bill No. 1484. I have been reading up on this bill and I'm a little confused about it's goal. Now I'm no lawyer (but I do play one on TV), but it seems to me that if this bill is passed it will allow for a 3 day special event permit for a retail dealer to allow homebrew on their licensed permits. So basically, a bar or restaurant can have homebrew at their establishment as long as its for a homebrew club meeting, homebrew contests, or just an exhibition as long as the homebrew is not being sold or offered to be sold. I think that this is wonderful and a great step for homebrewers, but does this bill just allow this for 3 days? Does that mean that it has to be a 3 day event or is it allowed only 3 times at each establishment? This is where I'm confused. Can anyone help explain this to me?
