My apologies for the pre-fab bloggging this week. Between a blitz at the office and two out-of-town trips and a mild flu-like ailment of some sort, it hasn’t been a great week. The light blogging continues this morning, due to an out-of-town football game last night in Kalamazoo.
But I do have a good BYCU piece: “Michigan is crazy for craft beer, a $133 million industry. Michigan ranks fifth in nation in number of breweries, microbreweries, brewpubs, according to Michigan Brewers Guild.” My state has 118 active brewers, which is mighty impressive.
Of course, the government is doing everything it can to slow down this growth industry, courtesy of its ham-handed, red-tape-bound Liquor Control Commission, but as Nock said, nature flows easily toward alcohol. It’s no use trying to stop it or even slow it down much. Attempts by Michigan bureaucrats to gum up the works and hinder its manufacture aren’t working. I say “hallelujah.”Bookmark it: del.icio.us | Reddit | Slashdot | Digg | Facebook | Technorati | Google | StumbleUpon | Window Live | Tailrank | Furl | Netscape | Yahoo | BlinkList
