It is Summer , right?

Well as the calender changes over to summer we can only hope that the weather does as well.  Because with that brings picnics, parades and festivals.  I love this time of year due to the fact that there some many new beers to try.  New Glarus, Capital, Leinies, Sierra Nevada are just a few of the breweries with summer beers to try.

Hopefully the budget item that was added is vetoed out by our governer so that the craft breweries in our state are not hamstrung by the added motions done by Miller Coors and the state Wholesalers.  I thought it was a shady way of getting some items past in the dark of night.  The craft breweries were in agreement on a lot of the items in the motion but never saw the final version.  This all could have been avoided with open communication between the wholesaler association and the brewers guild.(I am a former employee of a beer wholesaler-full disclosure).  Time will tell how this all plays out.
