"For some reason, politicians seem to think the federal government has more pressing issues than shipment of homebrew."

I have to agree with that.

The good news is that we are working on it and hopefully some day we will be able to ship homebrew through the USPS.

We need to stay postitive toward this effort.

I commend the efforts of the AHA in regard to this issue.

And yet they seem to spend plenty of time coming up with laws prohibiting things such as the shipment of homebrew, nipples appearing on television, and so on...


On a semi-related issue, I ordered some beer from De Struise in Belgium.  They sent it USPS  :o  When I checked the tracking information, I thought it was lost forever when I saw "In customs - JFK airport, NY", but lo and behold, it made it to me.
