I really have no idea where that amendment came from. We didn't get any forewarning on that one.
It seems to me that homebrewed beer/wine has to be served in a seperate area than commercial beer/wine and you have to have a "hall monitor" watching people go in and out? Is that true?
The problem I have with it is I am currently donating homebrew to various charities/non profit events. These events also feature commercial beer/wine to some degree. It is highly doubtful that anyone is going to set up a special area complete with a physical barrier and monitored point of entry just because there is homemade beer/wine. So any idea why this ridiculous amendment was put into AB 2609?
My reading of it is that it is intended to differentiate commercial beverages from homemade beverages. Some rope stanchions or something similar to differentiate the space would probably be sufficient. This amendment only applies to events open to the public.
