Urge Governor Brown to Sign AB 2172
Legislation Would Permit Homebrew Clubs to Meet, Hold Competitions and Share Their Beer Amongst Themselves at Licensed Establishments

The American Homebrewers Association is supporting an effort led by the California Homebrewers Association to pass legislation on behalf of California’s homebrewers.

Your action is needed now to ensure Governor Brown signs AB 2172, sponsored by Assemblyman Brian Jones of Santee, into law. If enacted, this bill will permit homebrew clubs to meet, hold competitions and share their beer amongst themselves at licensed establishments such as brewpubs, tasting rooms and restaurants.

On August 24, AB 2172 passed a final vote by Assembly, sending it to the Governor’s desk.

How Can You Help?

This is our last big push to ensure this bill is signed into law.

You may use this sample letter from the California Homebrewers Association to customize your own letter of support. It is important to be polite and respectful in your message. Please remember that this is a bipartisan issue and anything that we send is a reflection on all California homebrewers and our wonderful hobby.

Letter Address:

Governor Jerry Brown
c/o State Capitol, Suite 1173
Sacramento, CA 95814

Thank you for your support of homebrewers. Your action could make the difference in whether or not this legislation becomes law.
