Another Call to Action

It is legislative season and we beer lovers have some work to do. Imagine being able to buy kegs (1/2 barrel, 1/4 barrel, 1/6 barrel or smaller) at your local bottle shop. No need to call in a favor from your local pub owner. No need to pay a visit to the brewery. There is a bill in front of the legislature right now that would allow bottle shops to start selling kegs. House Bill 1462 will change the law that only allows specialty beer/wine shops to sell 5 gallons or less of beer.

You can very easily contact your local legislative representatives and tell them to support HB1462. It has passed the House of Representatives unanimously and it is currently “in rules” (in the Senate Rules Committee). There is always a chance that it will not get out of committee and will not make it to the floor for a vote. Contact your representatives and tell them that you want HB 1462 out of rules and on the floor for a vote and, when that happens, you want them to vote yes.

It is easy to find your representatives and contact them individually or collectively. It’s like filling out an online form. EASY! Send them a quick and simple note to let them know your opinion. Go to This Web site to find and contact your representatives.

Cut and paste this, if it helps:

As one of your constituents, I am writing to tell you that I want HB 1462 out of committee and on the floor for a vote. When that happens, I want you to vote in favor of HB 1462. I want my local beer/wine store to be able to sell beer in quantities larger than 5 gallons.
