Ala. Senate Toasts Homemade Wine, Beer

Montgomery, AL – Legislation legalizing the making of beer and wine at home for personal use has won approval in the Alabama Senate.

The Senate voted 13-6 Tuesday for the bill sponsored by Republican Sen. Larry Dixon of Montgomery. The bill now goes to the House.

The bill also allows homemade wine and beer to be transported to organized tasting and judging events. It limits the amount of beer being transported to 20 gallons.

Proponents said the bill recognizes that home brewing is an increasingly popular hobby in Alabama.
