As of this morning, we now have 76 members of Free The Hops and 216 people signed up for the monthly newsletter.

And though the nature of the RSVPs makes it impossible to predict exactly how many will be at our August 17th meeting with legislators, my current best estimate stands at 70.  Some of those are coming from Huntsville and i’ve even had one committment from Mobile.  If someone can make it from Mobile, i certainly hope that everyone in North Alabama who cares about beer will make every effort to be there.  If you haven’t already, be sure to let me know at

Also, the Beer Tasting Saturday was great.  Had about 60 people there and we sampled some amazing beers.  A list of the beers that made an appearance is now on our Yahoo! Group.
