Alabama beer ABV cap debate

I'm not a big YouTube fan: there's so much crap out there. But...I picked up this link off BeerAdvocate: YouTube - Debate on BIR for HB195

It's audio of a recent committee debate in the Alabama legislature on whether to change the law to remove an alcohol cap of 6% on beer. It's both priceless and pathetic.

I believe it was Will Rogers who said: "People who love sausage and respect the law should never watch either one being made."

That't not a committee debate... that is actually the state House of Representatives in session. Welcome to Talibama.

As a ex-resident of that state, I have to agree that it is pathetic. I have been talking with my close friend in regards to opening a pizzaria brew pub in Huntsville. The 6% cap is among many stupid laws that will make this difficult. How does Alabama expect to have economic growth when their laws from 1920 keep out so many new businesses. We will see what the future holds. I hope Free The Hops succeeds so I can get my business up and running.
