It's Legal to Move Homebrew in Washington!

Word on the vine is that Gov. Gregoire signed Senate Bill 5060 into law on Wednesday, making it legal to remove up to 20 gallons of homemade beer or wine from your house for tastings, competitions, and most importantly enjoyment outside the confines of your house. Hopefully this will pave the way for a robust new calendar of competitions and national events like the AHA conference.

No update yet (3PM EST) on the Washington Homebrewers Association website, but I'm sure hundreds of homebrewer thanks go out to Mark Emiley and the rest of the WAHA crew for all their work in pushing this bill through.
