The problem that I have is that the law is vague in defining equipment "to be used" to make beer. I have asked around in other forums about any regulation or court precedents that clarify the law but I haven't been pointed in the right direction yet. In essence both the ABC and Hop City are operating in a gray area. In the case of Hop City the ABC also had leverage with appproval or denying thier license to sell alcohol. They get to be the arresting officer as well as judge jury and executioner in this instance Just my opinion, but I don't think the ABC's position is as clear as advertised. Else they have been leaving some slam dunk cases on the table for years. Thier enforcement powers are not limited just to businesses that they license. This has been bringing attention to the issue. There have been several editorials in across the state over the last few weeks criticizing the ban and calling for repeal. Before this home brewing has barely been touched by the state media.
