West Bank Brewing Association hosts discussion of beer laws

Categories: BEER

Tip back a few of these and talk brewing laws.
Whether you're finding yourself fired up about or confused by all the recent discussion of brewing laws, Something's Brewing next week that you might want to check out.

The West Bank Brewing Association, a U of M student group, has assembled speakers from a few of the Twin Cities' best known beer institutions--Omar Ansari, president of Surly Brewing Co., Pete Rifakes, owner of Minneapolis Town Hall Brewery, and Jake Keeler, the marketing director of Northern Brewer Homebrew Supply--to discuss the laws, public policies, and business practices of local craft and home brewing.

"Something's Brewing" takes place on Wednesday, April 13, 6:30 - 8:00 p.m., in Room 55 of Walter F. Mondale Hall in the University of Minnesota Law School.

The discussion will continue afterward, in a, ahem, less formal, more lubricated form, at Town Hall Brewery. For more information, go to WBBA's Facebook page or to join the group's list serve; contact westbankbrewing@gmail.com.

This is a good idea for a panel -- I wish we'd see a similar movement towards reforming our archaic laws for opening distilleries. It costs $100 in state fees to open in ND, $5000 in KS, $10,000 in WI but $35,000+ in MN! Definitely a "WTF" moment.
