Although not really anything to do with Homebrewing, the FTH sponsored bill to raise the container size from a statewide 16 oz limit for bottles and cans died today.
(13) counties in Alabama already allow for containers larger than the 16 oz limit, but this was supposed to be the year.
Were not really sure what happened to the votes we were supposed to have , but it failed to pass the BIR by a vote of 42-40.
Technically the bill isn’t dead, but it would be a miracle if the sponsor and lobbyist got it on another calendar before the session runs out. (4) days left.
EDIT: After all that I wrote above being frustrated, SB294 was put back on the Calendar today and passed handily. Soon, big beer bottles and more variety for good beer lovers in Alabama.
