New Jersey residents, contact Governor Chris Christie's office and ask him to sign A-1277/S-641 on behalf of the state's craft brewers and beer drinkers. The bill, developed by the Garden State Brewers Guild, will give craft brewers in the state more flexibility in how, when and where they sell and promote their beer.  See http://bit.ly/QjGiZu for the full action alert.

SB2183 to legalize homebrewing in Mississippi was approved today by the Senate Economic Development Committee. It now goes on to the Senate Tourism Committee, where a vote could happen tomorrow. This is an historic moment as none of the previous homebrew bills in Mississippi have ever made it out of committee.

An identical bill has been filed in the Mississippi House.

Mississippi homebrew legalization bills cleared committees in both the Senate and House today. Next up votes in the full Senate and House. This is historic, given that no homebrew bill has ever passed out of a committee hearing in Mississippi.

This could be a great year.  Hopefully the end of illegal homebrewing in the US.  Just a note, the Alabama legislative session starts Feb. 5th...the same day as the NHC registration.  Coincidence or karma?  ;)

Mississippi residents, contact your state legislators in support of homebrew legalization bills. See http://bit.ly/XG0hFg for more details.

Homebrew bills have been prefiled in both the House and Senate in Alabama, where the legislative session starts tomorrow.  Here's some TV news coverage of homebrewing in Alabama: http://www.waff.com/story/20939769/ala-representative-pre-files-home-brewing-bill.

The Mississippi homebrew legalization billed was passed by the Mississippi Senate today. House vote is next. If the House passes it, the bill will go to the Governor to sign. Getting close!
