Mississippi Tries to Pop the Cap

Mississippians for Economic and Beverage Advancement (MEBA) have crafted a bill to allow brewers to craft quaffs with as much as 17% alcohol by volume. That’s up from the current 5% ABV limit. But according to sources inside MEBA, beer distributor lobbyists in the pocket of big Bud (Anheuser-Busch) have orders to kill the bill.

    Thanks for the post. We need all the press we can get. The bill will die tomorrow if the chair of the Senate Finance Committee, Dean Kirby, doesn’t let it come to a vote. The only way that will happen is if we get a lot of people to call and email him to tell him to let the bill come forward.

    Too bad, but not surprised. When I left MS 30+ years ago, i felt certain that the concept of dry counties was on its way out now that the younger generation was coming to power (spelled voting age) Here we are smack dab into the 21st century, and I still can not legally have a beer in my own home. I know I am way behind the curve with y’all on this issue, but now that I am back, I want to keep up, keep informed and be a part of the solution…. let me know where a guy in Monroee County can help
