So the governor of Alabama listened to the people and signed HB373, which will greatly expand the selection of beers in Alabama, and will hopefully encourage some local breweries there to experiment with some different beer styles. I know the folks down there must be pretty happy, and I am drinking a beer right now in their honor.
In other news, I went to the premiere of Beer Y'all last night, and it was a great evening. The guys who made this did a really good job of showcasing the great beer culture of North Carolina. In addition to all the great breweries featured, the film was part rockumentary, featuring the band Rat Jackson, a great bluesy rock band that I might have to check out the next time they play in Asheville. Also in attendence where many of Asheville's local beer celebrities that were featured in the film. If you missed the movie, you will get a second chance to see it this Saturday night (tomorrow) at Asheville Brewing on Coxe Avenue at 9 pm. Admission is free, and if you can't make it there you can also purchase the dvd online, or at Bruisin Ales when they get some copies of the dvd in the near future.
