Call To Action
LRB 3101 The Ellis/Kaufert legislation is seeking support right now from Wisconsin politicians. This bill would modify the current statutes to get them in line with Federal guidelines. The current statutes can be found here
. The interpretation of these statutes has resulted in homebrew being restricted to consumption only in the place of it's creations (home, farm, clubhouse, etc). This means you can't legally brew a beer and bring it over to a friend's house, a local competition, or to a Christmas party. Huh?!
LRB 3101 looks to modify these statutes to allow homebrewing and homebrewers to operate as it once did in the great state of Wisconsin. You can read a copy of the proposed legislation HERE.
The American Homebrewers Association, with 28,000 members, supports this legislation. Northern Brewer also supports this legislation and will be there at every turn to fight for the homebrewers of Wisconsin.
So, please take a few minutes and write an email or make a phone call to your local representative and ask them to support LRB 3101. Click HERE
