    Distributors said lifting the limits on craft brewery operations could open the way for large beer manufacturers to dominate the market by opening many small tasting rooms selling only their own beer.

    To prevent a large brewer from taking over the retail
    market, the bill limits breweries to selling their beer at eight locations. It also limits the amount of beer they may transfer from one brewery location to another.

    That’s stupid. So, good on Florida for lifting a couple of dumb regulations on craft brewers — but the distributors’ claim is false and self-serving, and the remaining restrictions have no purpose except to protect them from free and fair competition.

    I know. I’m an Oregonian. AFAIK there are exactly zero tasting rooms for the large manufacturers, because that market is already being served by (almost) every bar. It’s really just a way for the distributors to try and prevent the development of a Floridian equivalent of McMenamins, since they cut out the middlemen.

    If you want a really good movie about the JFK assassination, check out “Parkland.”

    I loved the heck out of that movie!
