Colorado’s antiquated homebrewing law may be freshened up

Measure seeks to move homebrewing beyond the Ward Cleaver era
Kathy Hands and Dwayne Jackson opened the Mancos Brewery Co. in fall 2014 as Dwayne Jackson sought to escape the boundaries set by a bigger brewery. He opened what he termed “a true community public house” offering beers brewed in small, 15-gallon batches in Mancos. The Colorado Legislature will consider a bill this session that liberalizes homebrewing, the starting step for many craft brewers like Jackson and Hands.
