General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Wisconsin Bill 290
« on: October 20, 2011, 09:43:11 PM »
My response.

"The first we heard of this was from Gary Glass like 2 days ago, when it was up for a vote. Maybe we should look at the AHA under the same scrutiny. Why did we not hear this from the AHA! Hey wait Gary is a constant poster to the WIHBA! maybe Gary was blind (because of NB!) to this but alot of homebrewers trust the AHA and give alot of money to them but maybe NB has more money to blind Gary's eye.

I think this will be deleted before to many get to see this and I will be just a person with an axe to grind."

You can follow this on the Northern Brewer Forum but if this get deleted there I will post the conversation from there.

From Cheshire_Cat

"While I am not from WI, this is a little disconcerting. I have been teaching government advocacy and grassroots lobbying for almost 12 years and it seems strange that individual homebrewer and "business" concerns in this issue were separated. We are always, always stronger in numbers. As sad as it is, the truth is it is easier today to protect businesses than it is to protect the individual. I have never met Jake beyond being an avid fan Brewing TV, yet I feel he is passionate about homebrewing and our community. I don't really believe anyone is throwing homebrewers under the bus, most likely someone is taking advance from people trying to protect their own interest. I give to the AHA, I truly hope they will step in and help protect WI homebrews. A slight against one is a slight against all.

I also hope that Jake will take the time to respond to Boulderbrewers concerns and outline what is planned to help protect individual homebrewers in WI regarding this issue."

General Homebrew Discussion / Wisconsin Bill 290
« on: October 20, 2011, 08:08:01 PM »
The long story short Northern Brewer has pursued their agenda to serve beer at their store in Milwaukee. Great! but this bill will torpedo home brewers. The Wisconsin Home brewers who have been working for more than 7 months crafting legislation that would allow us to serve at beer fests and outside our home. Enter Mr. Jake K a member of the AHA governing committee promoting bill 290, this helps Northern Brewer his employer but sticks a big road block to home brewers serving at beer fests. I wonder if he really cares about homebrewers other than their money that they spend at Northern Brewer.

I'm greatly disappointed in Mr. Keeler's actions, He is a member of the Wisconsin Hombrewers Assocation web group and we were never notified of their pending legislation.

I wonder where Mr. Keeler's allgiences lies.

Cool expanding your horizons! I have heard Mulies don't taste that great. Never had it, just heard. Hope it is good on the plate.

The farm elk I have had is also blah. No hope to try the wild but that isn't a possibility.

As far as ATVer's it only takes a few to ruin it for the rest of them. I'm glad the county I live in promotes the silent sports, like making bike trails.

Ron,

I'm so sorry for you loss. I have a feline friend who looks just like him and I know how I would feel losing him. I will raise a pint and hold shadow a bit closer to me for the next couple days.

Condolences.

You know that all of the music is availble online is what matters. You can't be angry over other peoples choices. The true music will stand the true test of time. God help us if it is Beibier. I think the classic rock will prevail because of the nostalgic qualities. Not to mention the singers qualities. Freddy Mecury vs Bierber.

I've heard a bunch of stories about people who are brewing and have the police show up.  It seemed unlikely to happen here nowadays, since a lot of people brew and it has to be a familiar sight.  When I saw the officer drive by I didn't pay much attention, but I knew he'd be back because there's no other easy way out of the neighborhood.  I was kind of surprised when he stopped at the end of my driveway and got out.


That is why my dog of choice is a German Shepard. Even the K-9 officer doesn't get out of his car, until he asks it is OK to get out of the car. My dog would only lick you but that isn't the point.

OK now back to OP's post.

Cool to find homebrewers, no matter their profession.

I'm mad as dirt for missing this. Crap in my hand chicken, we dropped the pile on this one.

I'm sorry to say we all need a kick in the a$$ to get us going about 4 months ahead of time. The crowd here at the aha forum will get there for sure. I hope next year we all can make it and send Barney's soul off in a good ol' homebrewed fashion.

I want to apologize for all that said they would make, I'm damn sorry I missed this.

You know we have a very nice bluegrassfest 4 miles up from me every year and you know what I think I did see Barney at this fest.

 Edit "That was a few years back though."
