We reached out to gubernatorial candidate Jeff Johnson last week via twitter to ask him about his stance on Sunday alcohol sales and brewpub distribution. His reply was a refreshing affirmative on Sunday sales, and a request to know more about brewpub distribution.
@MNBeerActivists Supported Sunday sales when in Legislature & still do. Need info on brewpub issue. [Email address redacted.]

Things are busy around here, so we haven’t had a chance to talk to Jeff about brewpub distribution yet. But, this is surely a good sign that we might have some leaders thinking about the wishes of the Minnesota consumers, rather than special interest lobbyists.
Republican gubernatorial candidate Jeff Johnson is a former Minnesota House Assistant Majority Leader. He currently sits on the board of Hennepin County, and represent the 7th district.
