Amateur brew masters no longer have to break the law to compete with the signing Monday of legislation that doubles their limit and allows them to transport their beer for the first time.
Gov. Nathan Deal signed House Bill 99 by Rep. Jason Spencer, R-Woodbine. Neither man is among the growing legends of craft beer aficionados.
But Spencer was responding to constituent requests in his first bill to become law. He said home brew competitions are becoming popular across the state as a way to boost tourism spending, making them an economic-development tool.
