I just ran across this article. It would seem that the shut down of the government is going to force the state of Minnesota to become dry. Not only will Miller-Coors have to pull from the state but it would seem that retailers are also unable to renew their licenses.
In this time when craft beer and alcohol in general seems to flow so freely, we tend to forget how much control the government really has over this industry. Sadly for Minnesota, they can’t even get lobbyists to fight for them currently.
Makes ya wonder, how long before there might be a strong moon shine business in Minnesota?
