Mississippi is poised to make homebrewing legal, after its legislature approved a beer-brewing measure Wednesday. The bill now heads to Gov. Phil Bryant, who last year approved a move to raise the state’s maximum alcohol limits on beer — something the current bill’s supporters point to with optimism. The governor’s office has not indicated whether he intends to sign the bill.
The development means that Alabama could soon be the lone U.S. state in which it is illegal to make beer for personal consumption. The Alabama legislature is considering its own bill to legalize brewing beer at home.
Please call your representatives and encourage them to support Alabama HB9!
