Our Gourmet Beer Bill, HB196, is on the floor of the House for a full vote on this Tuesday, 4 March.

If you have not yet had a chance to do so, please visit
and enter your ZIP+4 in the box in the blue sidebar on the page. As the legislature is out of session until Tuesday, you will have a better effect by calling the Representative’s home or office number.

Please keep it short, polite, and respectful. If you don’t know what to say, here is a suggestion:

“Representative (name), my name is (name) and I live in your district. I wanted to let you know that I am in favour of House Bill 196, the Gourmet Beer Bill, and would like you to vote yes on this bill. Thank you for your time, have a pleasant day.”

You don’t need to say a great deal more than that, unless they ask you questions, in which case I hope you have read the Beer Education pages of freethehops.org!

We are very close to getting Gourmet Beer in Alabama… and you, the person reading this blog post, can make the difference.
