Can I make homemade wine and beer?
Mississippi law provides that a person may make homemade wine for domestic or household uses only. Homemade wine cannot be sold. Wine is defined as a product obtained from the alcoholic fermentation of the juice of sound, ripe grapes, fruits or berries and made in accordance with the revenue laws of the United States.

Mississippi law does not allow someone to make beer or other malt products; and the law does not allow someone to make intoxicating or spirituous liquors. Homemade wine does not include any alcohol product made by distillation which is distilled spirits or hard liquor.

ABC on-premises permittees may make sales of alcoholic beverages at the permitted location between 10:00 a.m. and midnight, Monday through Saturday. Sales after midnight and Sunday sales by on-premises permittees may only occur if the hours for sale have been extended by the Department of Revenue.

ABC on-premises permittees in areas that have been granted resort status by the Department of Revenue are exempt from the above hours-of-operation restrictions. Package stores in resort areas are not exempt from the hours of operation above. 

Can I order wine over the internet to be delivered to my home?
No. It is illegal to bring wine into Mississippi and such products will be considered contraband.

Gov. Phil Bryant signed the homebrew bill, which means that starting in July, Mississippians can make their own beer.

The House of Representatives approved a bill earlier this month that would legalize home brewing in Alabama — the last state that maintains a ban on the activity. Representatives voted 58-33 in favor of the bill that would allow those 21 and older to make up to 15 gallons of beer, wine, mead or cider every three months so long as they are not in a dry county or city. The measure now moves to the Senate for consideration.
