Brewbama, you will be happier in about 3 months.

Thank you Martin.

Martin expressed what I was not going to say.

Edit. If you are that passioate about getting more HombrewCons in your area, here is my $0.02. Get the laws lined up for it to happen. You and others in Alabama are the ones to make it happen. The AHA has experience and will assist. Contact your local convention center, Tourism Office, and so on, and ask if they would host. The AHA has data and feedback from past conference locations that will help. Get all of your local clubs on board. Lots of good breweries down there will get behind you.

See you in AL in the future.

Edit again.

The Grand Rapids HomebrewCon happened because Chris Frey and Fred Bonjour worked hard to make it happen. An AHA member named Doug Geiss was a State Representative, and he wrote the Bill that had the language to allow it. Many clubs in Michigan were involved.

You can do it.

What Jeff said.

To add one more thing, the Government Affairs Subcommittee of the AHA, on which I sit, can provide guidance for starting the process of getting laws changed to allow things like Homebrew Con to happen in your state.  I used them to start work on legislation I previously mentioned in Ohio.  Your dues help the AHA provide these resources.

I didn’t ask for it to come to AL. I asked for it to come to the South. It’s not about me. I didn’t list an AL city for that reason. It’s about the 26% you guys are leaving out.

Like I said — disregard. You guys do your thing.

Cheers!

Your point is valid, Brewbama. We will no doubt discuss this at our annual meeting.

As in NYC?  Doubtful since it's so expensive.  White Plains, maybe or an area like that.
