Re: “First Draft with Nancy Palmer

Either way I think we can all agree it's confusing as written! I had the same thought when reading that it should actually be "on-premise" sales since that's what is currently against the law in GA. "Off-premise" sales to me refers to selling in any other establishment (growler store, grocery store, package store), all of which are legal in GA.

Re: “First Draft with Nancy Palmer

Hey, Travis! Thanks for reading.

Actually, the quote as written is correct. What she's referring to is more cumbersomely described as "on-premise sales for off-premise consumption." The GCBG's main objective at the moment is to earn the right for both breweries and brewpubs to be able to sell beer directly from their establishments to consumers who will take it elsewhere (home, etc.) to drink. Make sense?

Re: “First Draft with Nancy Palmer

The following line needs editing:

"This year, as a primary thing, we're looking for off-premise sales for breweries and off-premise sales for brewpubs".

I believe she meant "ON-PREMISE sales for breweries and off-premise sales for brewpubs"

Taco Mac certainly had a huge selection of beers in the 90's before it was common to do so.

There were dozens of taps, but the real variety was in their bottled beer selection. A friend worked at the defunct Pharr Rd location and we would consume bottled beers of the world to our heart's delight while the manager was doing blow in the backroom.

I enjoy both craft beers and nearly tasteless, yet highly refreshing, macro brews.

Re: “First Draft with Jason Santamaria and Chris Doyle

Who will be the first distributor to stand up and publicly announce they're in favor of on-premise sales? Seems like a no-brainer in terms of becoming a Georgia craft beer community hero, not to mention guaranteeing tons of new brewery customers for that distributor.

Re: “First Draft with Jason Santamaria and Chris Doyle

This interview really gets to the core of why Georgia three-tiered system regulations are so crazy. The distributors wouldn't go out of business if the legal mandate to contract with one were to go away. They provide a valuable service that breweries are willing to pay for. As Mr. Santamaria said, "I want a distributor because I don't want to be a logistics company."

The legal mandate for the three-tiered system is certainly good for distributors, but it's not essential to their survival, and it's bad for consumers.

@Lorenzo: I'll admit, it feels pretty farfetched still.

Re: “First Draft: Orpheus brewmaster Jason Pellett

Holy cow, you went from tasting the first sour beer of your life in 2009 to brewing them commercially in just five years?! I've been drinking Belgian lambics since the '80s and homebrewing for almost as long. You indeed have had luck ... and drive. I look forward to tasting your beers.

Re: “First Draft with Hop City's Kraig Torres

Great writeup Austin...Kraig has done a fantastic job curating HopCity's selection and educating his customers. He has set the bar high for all of the growler stores that have opened since...
