Alabama’s alcohol laws are changing again.
Legislation was approved in the Alabama Senate legalizing home brewing of beer, wine and mead.
Republican Sen. Larry Dixon of Montgomery sponsored the bill, even though he said he was not a home brewer.
“There are home-brewing clubs around the state,” Dixon said. “It’s their hobby. They don’t have a legal way to get their product to their tastings and their shows where they judge the best beer.”
Dixon said home-brewing clubs brought this issue to his attention.
