Good news for home brewers. The Oregon Senate has passed a bill that would allow hobbyists to brew up to a hundred gallons every year. Last spring, it came to light that home brewers have been illegally operating in the state for the last 20-years.   Current law states that home brews must be consumed in the home and not transported. So, when brewers took their handiwork to wine tastings and county fairs, there are in violation of the law. “We are looking forward to having it come about. It may also open up participation with home brewers for the Bend Brewfest and let people sample. People playing in their craft and sharing the beer.” Tom Gillis is a co-owner of the Brew Shop in Bend. So far, there is no opposition to the Bill. It must pass the Senate and a provision of the Bill will allow it to immediately go into effect after the Governor signs it.
