Naturally, I\’m glad to see malted beverages even mentioned, but why no mention of retail / wholesale / distribution rights for breweries or distilleries? Is the general assembly simply willing to ignore the metric tons of tax revenue that would be generated through allowing Sweetwater, Atlanta Brewing, and Terrapin to engage in a little self-distribution of their own? I will never cease to be baffled at the legislature\’s inherent need to draft legislation that differs wildly from one type of alcohol to another. If I can order wine from out-of-state wineries, can I also order beer, which usually has a lower %ABV?
I know there are several lawyers who read this blather. One of you get in there and decipher HB393 for the rest of us.
So here\’s hoping their state legislature takes a step in the right direction. I can\’t help but wonder, though, whether the neoprohibitionists will seize this opportunity to continue to head in the same direction as Iran. I can\’t emphasize enough how much life has improved since the passing of HB645 in Georgia. If I lived in Alabama, I would be pursuing this one ravenously.
Heh. If I lived in Alabama.
