    If a brewery isn’t charging for tasting, why would they need a food prep license? I assume the brewery/tasting room is private property, and they limit the number of guests (plus check age). If they require a food prep license, then why don’t I require one when I have a dinner party at home?

    I just visited AleSmith yesterday and they said they were visited, but had no problems whatsoever. So their tasting room continues to be open and is in no danger.

    I spent 3.5 hrs in a meeting with 7 commissioners this morning relating to the small boutique winery ordinance, to allow direct sales from the small guy to the consumer, and we have some progress. The wholesalers of USA are adamant in their position, to let the farmer starve to death rather than sell their product directly… We have to make a united stand for a return to freedom in this country.

    Tomme, and all SD Brewers, this sucks. Well spoken Tomme as always. To the complainant… lets just call him or her the lil whiney one…or maybe bud rep…. you are not welcome in our tasting room…and rest assured that our tasting room has been under the disorganized ridicule, discombobulated regulation, and unfounded rule making of our local Health authority since opening. Further, I am very thankful that I was required to install a roof in my basement to “keep things from falling into the beer” being filled into growlers 2 stories above the basement… really, I’m not joking. Love you guys, fight the fight, we’ll prevail in the end.

    I am just stunned. This has to be a joke. Why didn’t these tasting rooms have food prep licenses? How will this affect the tours of the breweries?
