Scott Wallace, a representative in NH, contacted us today. He has introduced a bill to legalize hobby distilling in NH. For those of you from NH, please reach out to him to thank him.

For all others- we need to get this in front of our own state legislators to urge them to do the same, and also get this around the Hill, so please contact your federal Senators and Representative, letting them know that another state is making the move to remove prohibition on hobby distilling, and to bring parity to the related hobbies. It is senseless to continue the prohibition on distilling when beer and wine making at home have been legal for literally decades.

Hi IM Mike up in New England...I'm writing to hopefully raise concern I have. A new bill H.R. 747 has been introduced...It is entitled: The Craft beverage modernization act of 2017....However...the section which is most important to us regarding legalizing home hobby distilling has been LEFT OUT OF THE TEXT!!! If this bill passes, it WILL NOT change the current status of our hobby at all....

We are aware of this, and are working to be added to the bill. We have also been told that there is little chance of any tax related bills passing this year, so we are looking at other options.
