Did this just recently get struck down again? And if so, who is lobbying on behalf of microbreweries?

Curious because if the FL brewers need a lobbyist, my dad is freelancer that does healthcare law primarily there and may be interested in helping.

If anyone is interested, PM me.

The Fl Brewers Guild has a lobbyist who is working on it. Its not dead yet. This week we'll see what happens in the House.

From Josh the lobbyist for the Fl Brewers Guild...

"Debbie Mayfield is the chair of the committee and her office needs to be contacted by everyone to apply a little pressure to make sure our voice is heard. Her office number is: (maybe call both numbers to let her know)

Capitol Office - (850) 717-5054
District Office - (772) 778-5077"

I'd say even if you don't live in Fl, call. Tell her you want Fl made beer in 64 oz growlers!

What's the limit now? 32oz?

That and 128oz.

I wonder if a case can't be made given the info in this article:
http://247wallst.com/2013/04/01/the-10-states-making-the-most-on-beer/

Even though FL makes the top 10, its interesting that Colorado makes #1 by a long shot and also has some of the least restrictive beer laws.

Doesn't it make some sense given the rightist politics of Florida to argue for less restriction, not more? Shouldn't a "small government" argument appeal to the largely republican FL legislature? Or are they really that corrupt?

Florida is allowed to have 32oz and 128oz, but no 64oz based on size limitations for an old personal consumption law (no 40's either, only quarts).

I love that you can have a 128 oz growler but not a 64. Let's encourage moderation!
