I don’t understand how a state that purports to promote business and wants to bring businesses in from other states passes laws that socially will prevent businesses from other states from expanding or moving to that state. Killing a gnat with a bazooka is never a good idea.
- This is a good story on the culture of BrewDog. I’m really interested in yet another story of how a beer geek had a moment of clarity when they drank a certain beer. I never had that. The closest I came was when I found Pete’s Wicked and made that my beer of choice, but there was no epiphany. It just grew organically.
- This story out of Georgia and its growler laws is fascinating in its complexity and utter silliness.
- Here is another story of a state making it easier for people to buy beer. What does it mean? It means is easier to buy beer in Pennsylvania.
- The quote from the legislator used in the beginning of this story probably cost the Alabama distribution/wholesale lobby a good chunk of money. This timeline could be used to describe most Southern states move towards allowing better beer to flow.
- I don’t really care about Destihl coming to North Carolina. I like having more options, but it doesn’t really matter. The thing I’m interested in is how whenever one of the Triangle distributors gets one of these high-profile distribution deals they send out press releases. For whatever reason, that doesn’t happen with the Charlotte distributors. Sometimes, I’m lucky if my reps tell me they have a new brewer on their roster. Maybe that’s part of the reason why the Charlotte brewers don’t trust the distributors.
