Monsters invited to 2nd Annual Shreveport Brew Fest!

The Monsters have again been invited to the Shreveport Brew Fest. Way to go!

Louisiana HB1484 signed into law by Governor Jindal.

HB1484, which statutorily recognizes homebrewing in Louisiana and permits the transportation and serving of homebrewed beer, was signed into law by Governor Jindal on July 6, 2010. Party!.

MMMMonsters Featured on AHA Website!

April, 2010: The Malt Munching Mash Monsters were the "Club of the Month" on AHA's website in April. It is a great honor for a club as young as ours to be featured anywhere, much less on the greatest homebrewing website of them all. Hurrah!

MMMMonsters Craft Legislation to Legalize Transport of Homebrew!

MMMMonsters club prez Michael Nealy and AHA Director Gary Glass have crafted legislation sponsored by Rep. Patrick Connick, D-Marrero, and Rep. Michael Danahay, D-Sulphur, which will specifically allow the transport of home brewed beer (currently ruled illegal by Louisiana Alcohol Control Board) to registered events and private functions. This legislation will pave the way for national homebrew events to resume in Louisiana.

HB503 in LSU Reveille, by Ben Bourgeois. Proposed House Bill to define home brewing laws, remove reliance on federal law.

    We made The Shreveport Times!

    Melody Brumble's article about our group appeared in the Shreveport Times today. I think that overall it's a pretty good article. I think she should have concentrated more on Mike. My name appears in the article about 100 times!
