And Now for Some News on Where You Can Buy Your Beer
My business reporting job and beer-blogging hobby don't intersect too often, but last week I had the opportunity to report on a story in which many beer drinkers may be interested.
If you haven't heard, there are - or, should I say, were - two bills going through the Colorado Legislature that would expand the locations for selling beer in the state. The first would have allowed convenience stores to sell full-strength beer instead of just the 3.2% ABV version of the product they now can sell. The second would allow grocery stores to buy the liquor licenses of local liquor stores and sell whatever they would like.
This is one of those rare posts where I won't offer an opinion, as it's my job to stay neutral in legislative matters (unless, of course, they specifically try to ban double IPAs, in which case I'll lead the march on the Capitol against it). But I thought it was worth keeping people abreast of what's going on in the strange intersection of beer and government.
