ND proposal may allow homebrewers to sell beer

This could be an early picture of a major brewery operation someday!

In North Dakota, there is a bill proposed by Dan Ruby (R) to allow homebrewers to apply for a “domestic brewery license”. This would allow homebrewers to sell their beer, offer beer tastings, or even sell their beer to wholesalers to get their beer in stores. The bill will be heard by North Dakota House’s Industry, Business and Labor Committee. You can bet I’ll be watching this closely.

Wow! How do we make this happen in Colorado? You’d think with a governor like Hickenlooper, owner of Wynkoop Brewing Company, this might be possible.

I am a avid homebrewer and winemaker. I’ve been making my own beer and wine for many years. I started making beer when I was in college (mostly because the drinking age in the United States is 21). My first few beers were horrible. The beers are much better now, and I often supply my neighborhood with free beer!

    Fat chance it’ll pass through the ND House. If it doesn’t (a) Give money to farmers or (b) Take money away from education, bills just die in our worthless tightwad Legislature.
