Home-brewing beer will be legal in July

JACKSON — Gov. Phil Bryant has signed a bill into law allowing home brewing of beer.

Senate Bill 2183, which takes effect July 1, will allow people over 21 to make their own beer, as long as they don’t sell it.

A household with one resident over 21 will be able make up to 100 gallons of beer in one year. If there are two or more people over 21 in the household, they can make 200 gallons per year.

Home-brewing had been ruled legal, but the state Department or Revenue had refused to issue permits to any but commercial brewers

It’s the latest of several beer-related bills to become law over the past two years. Mississippians can now purchase beer with higher alcohol by volume and sample beer at state breweries.
