The more I read about beer distributing, the more angry I become. Stacked against competition and the consumer and in favor of the privileged like everything American. End of rant and lets not get into politics.
A side note. Since Reyes beverage group bought Gold Coast beverage, Florida's largest distributor, they now surpass A-B as top distributor.
This is another reason I like home brewing. The producer is me. The distributor is me. No need for a retailer and the consumer is me. While legally limited to 200 gallons/year, sometimes the evidence disappears.
