AB 1425 does seem to hurt AHA & CHA:
... (2) Existing law authorizes a person to manufacture beer or wine for personal or family use without the need for a license or permit, as provided. Existing law authorizes the removal of beer from the premises where made for use in competition at organized affairs, exhibitions, or competitions. Existing law authorizes the removal of wine from the premises where made, for use at organized affairs, exhibitions, or competitions, including homemakers’ contests, tastings, or judgings, and prohibits that wine from being sold or offered for sale.
This bill would revise the limitations on the use of beer and wine produced under the above-described circumstances, to authorize these products to be removed from the premises where made only when used in a bona fide competition or exhibition, for personal or family use, or when donated to a nonprofit organization for sale at a fundraising event, excluding nonprofit organizations that either promote home brewing or home winemaking or that are primarily composed of home brewers or home winemakers, as specified. The bill would require beer or wine donated to a nonprofit organization under the bill to be labeled with designated information, and would otherwise exempt it from complying with existing labeling requirements...

Terry, look at who authored this request.. CHA. There appears to have been a wording change. Just sayin. Also, if you look at the bills that are up for the future, things look a bit concerning. There is some legislator, I believe from SoCal that has a number of bills up.. and I don't believe they are for easing. Hundreds of bills up.. most would not affect us.. but, the job of a lawmaker is to make more and more and more laws. Each lawmaker has his own bias or agenda. Businesses like InBev seem to have a way of putting the squeeze on a lot of things.
