I was talking to a homebrewer in Oregon who was starting up a tasty new batch. She said they left Utah because it was illeagal to homebrew and ya couldnt even buy hops there… In UT’s defense she said that law changed two years ago.[/quote]
The US is really more like a bunch of seperate countries held together by a strong fed. govt. With so many different cultures, backgrounds, dialects (of English), customs and social norms depending on where one is. And that was how many felt untill the US Civil War settled the question of state or country first…
If somebody doesn’t agree with the alcohol laws of Utah they are free to go somewhere else. Same goes if you don’t agree with certain lifestyles that are very open in certain places, then hanging out in San Francisco or Los Angeles might not be one’s cup of tea either.
It’s one thing I really like about the US. Being able to find a part of the country where one feel’s at home and with others that share common beliefs and values. For some that might be Provo, UT and for others, West Hollywood, CA.
