    If this comes to pass, then the Russians won. If this happens, then the USA is truly dead.

    I have a feeling that the same would apply in other states as well, if they were going by a strict reading of the law. At least by everything I have read it doesn't seem to be affecting the Portland Beer Festival. I'll be up there next weekend sampling all the brews they have to offer.

    this BS interpretation of the law wouldn't apply to breweries licensed by the OLCC so the beer fest will be fine.

    I remember when I was in Oregon you had to buy the hard liquor from a state building like a post office instead of a liquor store.

    But this is exactly what's wrong with it, a brewery is OK as long as the OLCC says so. What this means is "Home-brewers and small scale breweries, F*** You"
    It's not quite at the same level, but it is very similar to a large group of restaurants helping pass a law against bake-off involving anything from a person's kitchen!

    While I'm critical of the law, when reading it, it is pretty clear. Here is a link to the Oregon Law, and by using the drop down menu, you can check other states. California law, for instance has a clause that allows beer to be taken off the premise (home) for entry into a judged contest.

    When laws for homebrewing were passed, I don't think most lawmakers envisioned how big it would become. Many homebrewers have grown their hobby into businesses. I know of at least 3 who started this way, within 5 miles of my house. Brewers that pay incredible licensing fees to sell product within the state, have a right to be concerned about homebrewers who may push the limits of the laws.

    As to your comments about bake-offs, if the profit potential was there , I'm sure businesses would lobby to regulate it. Garage/Yard Sales are regulated in many cities for that very reason, businesses pay license fees and want protection from unlicensed competition.

    I don't disagree with you. I was just commenting on the thought presented that the festival might not go on b/c of the idiotic law.
