There’s a nice round-up on Charlie Papazian’s blog about some current state legislation around the country, for example some good news out of Montana, similar to Alabama’s news two weeks ago:
Montana just passed a law which will allow beer to be up to 14% alcohol by volume (before it was max at 7% by weight, about 8.75 % by volume), effective in October. That new limit is conditional.The beer must be built 75% from malted cereal grains, if above 8.75% by volume. If over the 8.75% and less than 75% from malted cereal grains, the beer must be sold in liquor stores.
That’s followed by a summary of pending issues at various states and some interesting tax information, too.
