deesonic - you don't recall too good - Williams beat Jenny Askins, Sue Schmitz is the FTH vote you should be making comparisons to (or to whom one should compare for those to whom grammar is important). I love you man and will see you this weekend at Brewfest.

However, thanks for bringing up Democrat Larry Means - he represented a district down near Attalla and was arrested for all kinds of corruption...

Congrats to you guys! I'm a longtime homebrewer (brewing today actually) and have always rooted for you guys to in finally get the right to brew. It's a great day now that home brewing is legal in all 50 states!

Hmm... what's this all about? I think we're both right. Or both wrong. Or something...

Yes, we probably should have a lottery, if for no other reason than the one you stated ... spend our money in state. But I'd rather have casinos like they do in Mississippi ... they're more fun.

We can both be right - there are two Phil Williams. But in the context of Huntsville area legislators, our Phil Williams (R - Madison) beat Jenny Askins in the special election to replace Sue Schmitz (D - recently released from a Federal Detention Center).

The other Phil Williams (R - somewhere) beat Larry Means (D - arrested for corruption).

In the context of our discussion, the special elections of our Phil Williams and Paul Sanford helped change the tone of the GOP legislature, making the passage of the Gourmet Beer Bill possible. When the legislature flipped to GOP control, our local GOP legislators have led the passage of beer-friendly legislation.

Right to Brew was a big topic at Brewfest. Lots of people, lots of beer, lots of fun... Free The Hops probably raised enough money to fund another years' worth of lobbying for better beer laws. If Birmingham's Magic City Brewfest is as successful (which I expect), then perhaps we'll see fewer restrictions on brewers' ability to sell retail.

I think we're both wrong. Without the grassroots consumers organizing FTH, none of these legislators would have given a damn.
