A measure that would allow Oklahomans to brew their own beer at home is on the way to the governor.
The House of Representatives today passed House Bill 2348 by a vote of 76-20.
A clause that would let the bill become law when the governor signed it failed to get the required two-thids support. It needed to get at least 68 votes; the vote on the emergency clause was 58-31.
According to the measure, home brewers would be required to have a permit from the Alcoholic Beverage Laws Enforcement Commission.
Beer enthusiasts could not sell their brew and could not make more than 200 gallons in a year under the proposed law.
It currently is against the law to make beer at home in Oklahoma.
