Jimmy Carter Signs HR1337 Allowing Home Brewing

In November 1978, Congress passed HR1337 repealing Federal restrictions on the home brewing of small amounts of beer. Jimmy Carter, 39th President of the United States, signed the bill into law in February 1979, and many states soon followed suit. However, this bill left individual states free to pass their own laws limiting production, leaving some states, like Alabama, with the old laws still on the books.  Check out this article to see what an amazing affect this had on the proliferation of Small, Locally owned and operated brewpubs.
