A bit of future history here. Seems like the craft beer movement is one of the few movements that the do-nothing congress seems to have let happen.
The Library of Congress which is probably the only part of Congress that I give a &*$(@ about has added the website of the Brewers Association to their historical record:
Now it may seem that I am using this post as an excuse to pinata on an easy target but it this is the type of small seeming action that is really important. Craft beer has become so known that we are now part of the public policy conversation and that means that maybe, small brew friendly laws and rulings may be coming. Plus, like getting into the Smithsonian, means you have to be culturally relevant to not just a niche but to a big set of America. So mark 2/11/15 on the calendar. It might be a date to remember.
