I want to be clear. With the exception of Anheuser-Busch, the breweries listed on our boycott list do not appear to be opposed to Free the Hops’ legislation. In fact, we know many of them support it. Back Forty, in particular, is an Alabama brewery that wants to open a tap room at their new Gadsden location. But every dollar we spend on these beers goes to our opposition. If we promote these breweries, we are promoting their distributor. We can’t boycott and then pick favorites. We’re sorry.

The best way to resolve this is for the AB wholesalers in this state to back off and help make the Brewery Modernization Act law.
