For those that don’t know, until recently, it was technically illegal to take homebrewed beer out of the residence where it was made. The only exception was if you were taking the beer to a competition, and then you could only take 1 gallon at a time and the only people that could taste the beer were the judges. Yeah. Go go civil liberties?
Thanks to the Washington Homebrewers’ Association, this has been changed. The new bill (along with strikeout text so you can see how idiotic the first bill was) went into effect 4 days ago.
WA homebrewers can now transport up to 20 gallons of beer outside their home for a variety of purposes. Thanks, WAHA!
