Thanks everyone for sharing your thoughts about Montana’s messed-up alcohol laws. I know I learned a lot from reading the comments and the added links. This is a big issue that isn’t going to just fade away. Breweries like Big Sky want to see changes so that they can continue to grow, so the next legislative session should prove to be interesting
Also, thanks for bearing with me during a week of taking antibiotics for a sinus infection. The inability to taste anything unless it was liquid fire combined with the beer-is-bad-for-antibiotics thing your doctor always tells you, made for less-than-normal consumption this week. In other words, I didn’t get to try very many beers, so the wordy posts helped to pass the week.
I’ll have a fresh batch of new brews to talk about this week, including John Masterson’s winning porter from the Missoula Community Brew. It’s on tap at Big Sky Brewing Co., and I’ve heard good things about it. Profits from the beer will be divided between the Zoo City Zymurgists homebrew club and this year’s charity, Garden City Harvest, a local organization that works to provide high-quality food to low-income people, and offers education and training in ecologically conscious food production.
