Oklahoma's home brewers now legal

Oklahomans, who already were allowed to make wine and cider for personal use, may add beer to that list.

House Bill 2348, sponsored by Rep. Colby Schwartz, was passed yesterday, allowing Oklahomans to brew up to 200 gallons, or about 80 cases, a year.

They must obtain a permit from the state liquor agency, as home wine- and beer-makers do now. Beer made for personal use would not be taxed.

A similar bill advanced in the Alabama legislature last month.
