Mississippi Takes Step Closer To Law Changes

Mississippi is finally making some headway with their antiquated beer laws.  Three bills that will make for a better beer situation in the state passed the state senate.  Next stop, the house.

The bills are:

Senate Bill 2878 – Allows the alcohol by weight to be raised from 5% to 8%.

Senate Bill 2370 – Allows beer with greater than 5 percent alcohol by weight to be brewed. The beer could also be sold over Mississippi state lines.

Senate Bill 2600 – Allows breweries to provide samples of the beer.

Raise Your Pints is doing a lot of great work to help push through the barriers of Mississippi’s pretty strict alcohol laws.   Sadly, the home brewing beer (to legally allow home brewing in the state) died in committee recently.
