General Banter / Did you like my homebrew? Please help...

If you really want to be technical, drinking home made beer outside of the brewer's home is illegal in Kansas.  To submit homebrewed beer to a competition is also illegal.

Kansas home brewers have been working with an attorney to change the laws regarding this. 

THE BILL IS UP FOR VOTING TUESDAY, FEB. 4TH

If you live in Kansas, please take 10 minutes to send your representative an email asking him to vote yes to this bill.

the KS vote for homebrew legislation changes could happen this coming week, you need to contact your
reps and senators if you want to make this happen. Dont put it off, do it today.

here is how to find out your ks rep and senator email address using your home address
http://openkansas.org/

Easy steps:
1. Look up your representative here:

http://openkansas.org/

Scroll down until you find "Kansas Representative"

(or use this link which is the actual state link but harder to use:
Link to Representatives info, http://www.kslegislature.org/li/b2013_1 ... se/roster/)


2. Send him/her an email.

As the subject line, use "House Substitute HB 2223"

Address the email as:

"To the Honorable (Representative's name),"

if that is too awkward, use, "Dear Representative (full name)"

Ask them to:

Please support House Sub. for HB 2223 when it appears above the line for floor debate and action.
Please ask their fellow legislators to vote for this bill,
To contact Senators they know to support the bill when it arrives there.

This is what I wrote:

Quote
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


At the end of the email, take responsibility for your request.  You are appealing to your Governmental
representative that is in office whether you voted for them or not.

I ended mine with:

Thank you,
 
Rob Martin
(actual address)
Lawrence, KS 66046
(mobile phone number - optional)

If this sounds too complicated, then just email them and ask them to vote yes for House Sub for HB2223


3. Let our attorney know you sent the email so he can follow up.  For me, I just did a BCC with his email address.

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).


Thanks.

Prost!

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.

I can definitely understand this perspective.

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!


This is why we went with the donation and not a specific $ amount for the privilege for beers.  The beer was free, donations were strongly encouraged.  Remember, Kansas has yet to ratify the 21st amendment - the amendment to repeal Prohibition.  Kansas liquor laws are some of the strongest in the country and serving homebrew outside of the home is not exactly Kosher.

Speaking of which - thanks for the stout complement.  It is my interpretation of Tallgrass Buffalo Sweat.  About 10-20% more hops, 10-20% less lactose (milk sugar).  A tad less sweet, a tad more hops, both of which accentuates the dark malt and gives the perception of coffee - which no coffee was put in it.

Please - patronize Cinder Block Brewery.  Great little brewery in Northtown. Take Oak across the river, turn right on 18th, 1 block on left.  Great people, even greater beer.
