    Thanks to all the hard work from my friends with "Raise Your Pints" in Mississippi.
    Mississippi Senate Bill 2183 (legalize home-brewing) has been signed by the Governor for approval.
    Just another big step made in my home state by a hard working group to bring better beer here. I don't know what we'll be working on for next year but I look forward to going to some great homebrewing competions between now and then. Might even enter one myself.
    Cheers!
     
  2. At least we weren't last! Hell yeah.

    It's about time. We are slowly getting there. New beers keep trickling in every few weeks.

    I don't understand why it can't be in both, pretty big news. If it's any consolation, I heard it from you first on the North Mississippi Craft Beer page on FB.
