MONTGOMERY, Alabama — The House Economic Development and Tourism Committee today approved a bill that would allow those 21 and older to make home brewed beer, wine, mead and cider for personal use.

The bill, by Rep. Mac McCutcheon, R-Huntsville, would limit the total production to 15 gallons every three months.

The committee approved the bill after a public hearing, putting it in position for consideration by the House of Representatives.

Several home brewing enthusiasts spoke in favor of the bill.

Jason Sledd of Huntsville told the committee he took up home brewing as a hobby last year.

“At the time, I had no idea what I was doing was illegal in the state of Alabama,” Sledd said.

Sledd said he learned home brewing was illegal after joining a home brewers club.

Rep. Berry Forte, D-Eufaula, said he was opposed to the use of alcohol because of what it had done to some family members. He asked Sledd whether he brewed beer in front of his children.

Sledd said he did, and said he was teaching them the responsible way to use alcohol.

“They will have years of experience of seeing an adult drink alcohol and not being intoxicated,” Sledd said.

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Friday, September 28, 2012

Alabama… what a fouled up, messed up, idiotic state.

Just follow the stink of money, and you’ll find the state’s politicians and business leaders copulating together in the filth of that slop trough.

Bunch of God damned bastards… every God damned one of ’em ought’a go straight to Hell.

BIRMINGHAM, Alabama — Michelle Pierce waited Thursday at the Alabama Spay/Neuter clinic to pick up Mystery, the stray calico cat named after she mysteriously waltzed through Pierce’s dog door one evening, and the three kittens — Tigger, Chelssey and Zure — that came along with her.

“I think it’s better to go ahead and get them fixed even if I found them a home … . They multiply like rabbits,” Pierce said.

As the cats, still drunk from anesthesia, recovered in a dog crate, Pierce paid a total of $48 for having them fixed — a break over the clinic’s already low rates because she qualified for assistance.

Pierce said she wouldn’t have been able to afford the prices at a full-service veterinary clinic.

“I would have had to take them to the Humane Society. This place is a life-saver for animals and for folks with low income,” Pierce said.
