It’s a celebration in Oregon for those who enjoy making beer and wine at home and sharing with friends. The bill that also brings back hobby beer competitions is easily sailing through Salem. “Oregon has a long tradition of home brewing." Jason Conger of Bend says the bill had a lot of support from both parties because it clarified a law that stopped home brewers from taking the alcohol away from home. That stifled things like county fair competitions and sharing your home made brew with friends at their home. Conger says their was a public outcry when the spigot was turned off on these popular hobby events: “As you probably know a lot of our breweries were founded by folks who got their start in home brewing and the brewery business in Oregon is a big job creator; certainly in Central Oregon that's true as well." Senate Bill 444 clarifies that those who brew craft beer or wine at home can share it with friends and neighbors and enter into competitions.
