The ABC’s of Bad Alcohol Laws are alive and well in NJ. In many states, laws are being relaxed in response to shutdowns, supply chain issues, and other challenges that craft brewers have faced But NJ did their brewers dirty by making a laundry list of bad rulings called the “ABC Special ruling of 2019” The full ruling is at https://www.nj.gov/oag/newsreleases19/Limited-Brewery_Special-Ruling.pdf  and the full story is at https://breweriesinpa.com/new-jersey-continues-to-be-the-armpit-of-america-strips-breweries-down-to-bare-bones/

Did you know there’s a Sake Surge? It’s clearly never been bigger in the United States than it is right now. If you’re Sake-curious, do some exploring here https://www.foodandwine.com/wine/sake/why-sake-is-more-popular-than-ever-before

DTC has drawn fire and it’s a win for some, but a potential loss for consumers. Wine has had pretty open access to being shipped Direct To Consumer (aka DTC) - but a recent proposal could make that more difficult and expensive.
