    That's going to wreck their economy! :wink:

    EDIT: My comment preceded reading the article. The people that this affects are a confined bunch that's so small of a group that it won't have that much effect as my comment assumes. (unless they are all lushes. :slight_smile:)

    Apparently these petty politicians do not need beer themselves because they are already drunk with their own sense of bloated self worth.

    Hopefully homebrewing isn’t affected. :astonished:

    Well, for the moment the homebrewers should be OK as regards beer stock. But “They are searching all bags and things coming into the building …”. Will they confiscate ingredients like malt, hops, yeast,…? :grimacing:

    Cheers!

    Only if they are able to smuggle ingredients past the confiscation police.

    Not all beers are "equal ". Wonder if some savvy residents are stockpiling high ABV stouts to drink at a frenzied pace to stick it to the man :stuck_out_tongue:?

    I believe that this measure is “aimed” at reducing or preventing domestic violence; because of course beer turn people violent duh.

    Like Prohibition wine, “these ingredients are not intended to make beer. Do not to do the following...” :wink:

    Or if they do not confiscate the homebrewing ingredients and they didn't shut off internet access those locked down folks could watch the Three Stooges short on how to make your own beer.

    Spontaneous fermentation might have to make a comeback…

    I can see it now: coolships on top of the building(s).

    But you still need to produce wort to put in those coolships. Maybe the authorities will let them buy molasses and they can produce a beer like George Washington's small beer? :thinking_face:

    Cheers!

    I can see bootleggers ( I remember them in Georgia on Sundays back in the early 90s), taking advantage of this ..people get very inventive when they want their booze
