Alabama Moving Closer to Legalizing Homebrewing

The House of Representatives voted 58-33 this evening for a bill to make it legal to brew beer at home in Alabama.

The bill, by Rep. Mac McCutcheon, R-Huntsville, would allow those 21 and older to make up to 15 gallons of beer, wine, mead or cider every three months for personal use. It would not be legal in dry counties or dry cities.

    I think of the northern Alabama counties as slightly economically and educationally better than the southern counties, despite similar rural and agricultural characteristics. Nevertheless, the only wet counties in the north are Colbert and Madison while the southern and economically desperate Black Belt counties are soaking wet.

    58-33?! 33 voted against homebrewing?

    Alabama might be the fundamentalist capital of the United States. Politically active fundies may be the least pleasant and most heavily mutated type of progressive, though the other sub-species do their best to eclipse them.
