The AHA sent out two Action Alerts today.
In Michigan, HB 4061, a bill to allow homebrew to be served at breweries pubs and bars for club meetings & competitions, passed the House June 23. Next it goes to the Senate Regulatory Reform Committee for a hearing. Michigan residents, please contact the committee members and urge them to pass the bill.

In Wisconsin, the Wisconsin Brewer's Guild is asking residents for immediate help in sending a message to Governor Walker asking him to veto budget language related to microbreweries.
The language in question, known as Motion 414, would take away small brewers' abilities to distribute each other's beers and own and operate their own taverns. Such drastic alterations to a proven, successful business model will stifle growth and result in job losses.
