AB 2609 (2014)

AB 2609 (2014) was California State Assembly bill to legalize non-for-profit homebrew beer events where the charity exists primarily to support the homebrewing hobby. A previous bill, AB 1425 (2013), legalized the donation of homebrewed beer and other beverage to non-for-profits to help fundraising; a clause was put in AB 1425 that make the Southern California Homebrewers Festival illegal, preventing the Fest from occurring in 2014. The CHA worked with Assemblyman Brian Nestande to enact AB 2609 and fix the law.
