They say we should be thinking of our chillrens and ought not to be exposing them to 100 gallons of beer in our home and throwing underage parties.
1. I have no kids. I'm sure there are lots of homebrewers (or wanna be homebrewers) in AL that don't have kids either.
2. Throw underage parties? Good lord why? That's MY homebrew!
(This is an extremely lame excuse - can they point to this being an issue in ANY state where homebrewing is currently legal? I doubt it.)
They say without a license who is going to make sure we don't make people sick.
I'm surprised they allow you guys in AL to cook at home! I mean, what if your cooking/food handling skills are poor and you make someone sick!? The horror
They say we are a low class of people.
So making beer at home that's 10X better than the Bud light crap they buy at the store & drink is 'low class'? Morons. First class morons.
They say where I come from we call that boot legging.
Boot-legging is 'smuggling' liquor (the term doesn't cover beer to my knowledge, but I could be wrong). What, exactly, is being 'sumggled' when we homebrew?
I'll have to visit AL someday, but I know I could never live there. The basic level of stupidity and ignorance, just from the local politicians in this example, would make me want to kill myself. lol
