Alabama homebrewers can use our help

April 1st, 2008 | Posted by Real Beer

Support Your Local BrewerySupport Your Local Brewery has issued an E-Action Alert for Alabama, to help legalize homebrewing.

There’s the news:

Dear Alabama Beer Enthusiasts:

Your phone calls and emails have helped gain a hearing for Alabama’s Senate Bill 355 (SB355), which would legalize homebrewing in the state of Alabama. The bill will be considered by the Senate Tourism and Marketing Committee at a public hearing this Thursday, April 3.

The text of SB355 can be found here:
www.legislature.state.al.us/searchableinstruments/2008rs/bills/sb355.htm

What is needed NOW is additional support from Alabama residents prior to Thursday’s hearing, to ask the Senate Tourism and Marketing Committee members to do two things:

(1) Pass SB355 out of committee favorably.

(2) Persuade other Senators not on the Tourism and Marketing Committee to call for a vote on the Senate floor and pass the bill there.

Contact information for Senate Tourism and Marketing Committee members can be found below. Please call the first phone number listed for each Senator, which is the number for their Senate office. This should take about 10 minutes total. A receptionist will answer. Just make the two points described above.

Also, please email the Senators on the committee. A list of all of the email addresses that you can cut and paste into an email can be found below the Tourism and Marketing Committee contact info.

Additionally, if you have time, you can call the second phone number listed, which is a business phone for the Senators.

If SB355 clears the Senate Tourism and Marketing Committee and is scheduled for a vote by the full Senate, we will follow up with additional information to help obtain passage of the bill in the Senate and hopefully move it on to the Alabama House.

Thank you for your support for Alabama homebrewers and SB 355. Please forward this message on to any other Alabama residents that you feel would be interested in supporting this bill.

    this is a great idea. I just hope that it’ll create more employment than it will drunks.
