As a constituent in your area, I ask that you support House Substitute HB 2223. I believe this bill to be representative of individuals in our area and is inline with our current culture. It is time to make sharing homebrew with our invited guests legal.
(n) "Guest" means a natural person who is known to the host and
receives a personal invitation to an event conducted by the host. The term
"guest" shall not mean a natural person who receives an invitation to an
event conducted by the host when such invitation has been made available
to the general public.
(b) the making of wine, cider or beer by a person from fruits,
vegetables or grains, or the product thereof, by simple fermentation and
without distillation, if it is made solely for the use of the maker and, the maker's family,
guests and judges at a contest or competition of such
beverages, provided, the maker receives no compensation for producing
such beverages or for allowing the consumption thereof
Please ask them to send me a quick email of who they have contacted and I will follow up.
Remember to mention this is a substitute bill that is an agreed to compromise that only allows the below mentioned activities.
FYI- link to bill (http://www.kslegislature.org/li/b2013_1 ... 1_0000.pdf ), the significant parts are below and attached is the actual substitute bill. Please note last year, Jason(Asst. Revisor) modified the language both in the definition of guest and in 41-104 from what he received from Walter(ABC).
On the beer, I do think it adds a bit of a draw having "free beer" at the event. I may not have donated the proper amount for all the beer I drank, and I did drink a healthy share, but after all the mulligans, entry fee, chili, side games and such I was in pretty deep. If it gets more people out and involved anything else on top of that is just a bonus.
bbjon raises an interesting question. Donations of beer. I am sure there is legalese there that I hope someone recognized. I like the donation. I think maybe that the beer and alcoholic beverages shouldn't be on an honor donation system. I would hope it would be an easy question to ask of our brewery friends that donated. Perhaps we go college party style and sell an armband, then tips as you will. Still I would like to see the event and the organizers bases covered in any situation.
The Oatmeal Stout was outstanding!
