Phil Bryan, the governer of Mississippi, has recently signed a bill that legalizes homebrewing in Mississippi, the Magnolia state. The signed bill does not take effect until July 1st, but it will allow people over 21 to brew their own beer (as long as they don’t sell it). Each resident is allowed to brew up to 100 gallons of beer per year. If there are 2 residents per household, that household can brew up to 200 gallons.
Gary Glass, the director of the American Homebrewers Association was quoted:
“We appreciate the support of all of the homebrewers, the dedicated grassroots efforts of Raise Your Pints and the legislators who have worked so diligently to make homebrewing a reality in Mississippi. We are grateful to Senator John Horhn who introduced this bill and to Governor Bryant for his quick action and support.”
