JACKSON, Miss. (AP) – The House has sent a bill to Gov. Phil Bryant that would legalize home brewing in Mississippi.

House members voted 70-36 Wednesday to approve Senate Bill 2183, which allows people 21 and older to brew up to 200 gallons of beer each year, as long as they live in a city or county where alcohol is legal.

The measure exempts home brewers from permits and excise taxes charged by the Department of Revenue. The attorney general had said home-brewing is legal in Mississippi, but tax authorities had said it didn't have legal authority to create a permit specifically aimed at home brewers.

The bill says home-brewed beer can't be sold and can only be taken outside a home when the brewer is taking it to a tasting event or competition.
