Readers of this blog understand that I do not shy away from the political. I spent four years decrying the toxicity of a certain Worst President in American history. Now Georgia, long a bastion of let’s cater to white males, has reacted to voters saying they don’t like (some) politicians with anti-voting laws. Garnering the most headlines being a ban on handing by out water to those in line.
These “laws” are so egregious that Seriously All-American products as Major League Baseball and Coca-Cola have backed away from the obvious racist voting restrictions. And I would like to see Georgia breweries do the same, and more.
The brazen and in your face option of handing out beer at polling locations is not the best solution, though funny in an obvious way. But breweries are creative, out of the box people. What could they do with social media? What beers could they make and name that counters this racism?
It may be easy to steal IP for a Count Chocula beer but what if you worked harder and created a voting or equal representation under the law beer? Hold debates or have silly which beer wins a vote to go next into production. Perhaps a Governor Kemp is bitter beer? Craft beer can be a force for change. Time to get on the field and play.
