New DRAFT, Selling the Session, and the Cloudy Future of Beer Distribution.

The latest issue of DRAFT Magazine is out, and it includes my article on Selling the Session. Pegged to that: 10 Session Spots, i.e. bars and breweries dedicated to lower-strength beer. Maybe somewhere in all that is something you didn't know before.

In the same issue: Tim Cigelske takes a serious gander at a new Wisconsin law that was opposed by many craft brewers. It raises big questions about the three-tier system still used by most states--a system built for a different era, which is not to say tat it can't work in this one.

My question for you: Now that smaller breweries have a firm foothold on the American landscape, what will beer distribution look like in the future? Since it is apparently not yet possible to drink the stuff directly via the interwebs.

  1. Well, I don't have an answer. But thanks for the update from Wisconsin, depressing though it may be. This kind of legislation seems to crop up in many states. I don't see this sort of thing ending any time soon.
