Mississippi Legalizes Homebrewing!

Dear AHA, BA and Support Your Local Brewery Members,

Thanks to all of the contacts with legislators and the Governor, Mississippi has passed Senate Bill 2183 to legalize homebrewing.

On March 18, Governor Phil Bryant signed SB 2183 into law. The new law goes into effect July 1, 2013, at which time it will officially be legal to homebrew in Mississippi.

Thank you to everyone who supported Mississippi’s homebrewers! We particularly thank SB 2183 sponsor Senator John Horhn, Governor Phil Bryant, current Raise Your Pints (RYP) President Craig Hendry, past President Butch Bailey and everyone involved with RYP who contributed to getting this bill passed.
