Rogue Update: OLCC Says it Can't Help Home-Brewers/Winemakers This Year

Oregon Liquor Control Commission

The Oregon Liquor Control Commission earned Rogue of the Week dishonors earlier this month for its decision to crack down on home-brewers and amateur winemakers who offer their products at contests around the state.

The OLCC said then that it was "actively working on a solution" and working with state lawmakers to devise a fix next year for the problem. Today, the OLCC said definitively in this news release that it's "wait 'til next year."

“We were really hoping that we could find a legal alternative for this summer's events,” says Rudy Williams, OLCC deputy director of public safety services. “We know that these contests serve as a springboard for professional hopefuls. That is why we are committed to providing our full support to the legislature to find a permanent fix for this issue in 2011.”
