Sunday Liquor Sales – Minnesota House Commerce Hearing Preview

Judging from the 8 amendments filed with House Commerce Committee, members could end up adding everything from Sunday car sales to cannabis to Rep Jen Loon’s repeal bills. While those topics might very well deserve discussion at the legislature, as amendments they would add unnecessary controversy to repeal bills. Not only could any of these red herring amendments distract from the topic at hand, but would also play into a “poison pill” or “wrecking amendment” scenario.

Q and A with Zac Carpenter of Bad Weather Brewing

Bad Weather Brewing began with as alternating proprietorship, brewing at the Lucid Brewing facility. Is there any stigma from hardcore beer nerds about not having your own brewery?
I don’t know if there is a stigma as much as there has been a lack of visibility. For all the benefits that come with sharing a space, like lower costs, knowledge sharing and existing infrastructure, we don’t really have our “own” space. We don’t have that entrance point where beer fans can come see what we are all about, try all our beers, and just belly up to the bar and enjoy the atmosphere. The new taproom will fix that particular problem!
