"Weekly dish. Thanks for joining us this Saturday in the first day of spring. I'm here with Molly Herman today Morning morning, as as as a co host fill in and we're so excited, So there's a lot of stuff going on there this week was like, I don't know it felt like Well, First of all, we, you know, acknowledge that we we cross the one year anniversary. Yes, and we cross the one year anniversary of the shutdown of the bars and restaurants in the twin cities and that was that was weird. It was really It was really there is triggering moments I think across the board, you know from all of us, and I think in hospitality and everything else you know, and all sectors that had anything to do with You know, I mean, we always talk about the restaurants, but it's like you know the suppliers and then you know everybody but its intention to restaurants. They all felt that this week, So I think you mean this spring to me feels different because it's like a reawakening and another sense. Like we have hope you know, with the vaccine. Excuse me, the vaccine and all that kind of stuff. That we're seeing openings that are happening and where everything just feels more hopeful. It does. It does, And I think and I was trying to say was talking about it's like we're so his Minnesotans locally super tag to the weather. You know what I mean? Like, and so you start every broadcast because it's nice and sunny out. If that is so true. I mean, if this was one of those marches where we were not going to see ice off the lakes until you know, like late April, then this would be a different mood. This would be a totally different thing writing so I know that we are basically agrarian in nature, and that is what we Doson speaking of which you have a message from Janine. Whole leg. Oh, yeah. It says, don't touch that yard. It's too early should disturb the critters living inside. Hold tight. I trust me. I'm not doing any work. He was just thinking about it. I really just gonna sit out there and burn things and look at it. That's what I'm really talking about. Our data that is endorsed the working in the yard yet. That's basically it. Um, but right, so we're hopeful we were thinking about things, and there's a whole bunch of new things that are popping and I want to talk about a couple of the news items that drop this because they're pretty big. They're pretty big. I'm gonna start. Let's start with Tattersall because that seems to have changed. Everybody's like everyone was like, record screech moment, you know well, and when I first heard about it, I was like, Oh, my gosh, They're just pulling up and moving to Wisconsin. But they're not. They're having the cocktail room here. So here's the news. The news that dropped is that Tattersall is opening a new facility in River Falls, Wisconsin. If you In here on Dit is going to be a production facility, a much bigger production facility and it is going to be, uh, you know, a restaurant bar event space. I mean, it's not gonna be a wedding venue and all the stuff. So I think the big thing was, Of course, there you're like River falls, Wisconsin. And then you're you know, that was this sort of pain point for everybody. But the truth is, and you know, John, Crueler and Dan asking plainly state you know, this is we can't we have been limited by the production laws of the Minnesota average lost And so they have reached their capacity in order to be able to also have a cocktail room. So in a weird way, But to able to give us back the cocktail room in northeast, they had to go and move their production somewhere else. Think about how weird that it is. And I hope the legislators air listening. I can't do this is it really is a blow for companies that aren't able to grow here and wonder what the industry is right? I mean, well, and this is the thing where I think I feel really. I feel really bad for wine and liquor and beer, and all of our local industries that are, you know, have had to go through this sort of evolution of identity. You know, like, Of course, we still were still have this weird prohibition thing where we assign a morality to these products. And really, what we're talking about is their agricultural products. I mean, the stuff that they make is made from Minnesota agricultural product, You know, they take Minnesota grain they take. You know all these, you know, botanicals and whatever and grapes and you know all of the things that they make something from it, And then now you know they marketed and there's a great There's a boom. There's interest in it, and it's not about Vice, and it's not about you know these old laws that create, you know, sort of hampers to industry Well, and I think I mean, do you remember how long it took and how arduous it was to get the Sunday Open, right? And then we take that for granted. Now I'm a huge Sunday but in fact that is the only day I shop for booze now well and and I think, you know, everybody thought that it was going to change so much and and it didn't. It was just like one more day. One more day open, though. You know, with the pandemic. We've seen them loosening up on the laws for, like allowing wine and beer take out from restaurants, which which has been a lifeline for them, right, right. And, you know, I'm not sure where they are. And the cocktails to go at this point, But do you do you think they'll do that were Where? Loosening up enough like this, this sort of crucible of like, Okay, if this industry is going to survive, we've got to do these things. Well, I think I think that there is finally the time where there is a coalition, right? I mean, we've had the bever Minnesota craft. Beverage Council on and are We tried, too, and we had some staff who's that day, But we have talked about them and we are. We support them when we can..

"We have a crawler size that no other state uses that makes it a special order item. On DATs baked right into the original laws. In aside, the regulators can't even change it, You know, make it more practical, so you have to go back and really do it. So we help by getting you know all the producers and the really exciting thing for us is that we also have hospitality Minnesota, which represents some of the retailers. Have also signed on and said, Hey, this bill isn't just for the producers. It also has things in there that are gonna help us sell more products out of our restaurant, for example. Yeah, And that's sort of been. The frustrating thing is someone who's you know, been been involved in and paying attention to. Ah, lot of these these liquor laws and around the state for several years now, one of the frustrating angles is you've got, you know, all of these interests that are trying to should all be on the same page. You should all want a thriving Craft beer craft beverage industry in the state of Minnesota, because all ships rise, you know when, when, when it's doing well, but you know, there's there's There's all this turf that they're fighting over within the industry they don't want, you know retailers to be able to do this, so they don't want tap rooms to be able to do that. And and they got to knock that off and everybody worked together. We have We have some of the silliest and more archaic liquor laws or in the state, then In the entire country, and and it's been really, really slow to get them to change and part of the reason why that's really slow is because the entities that would all benefit from it seemed to be more often than not fighting with each other rather than presenting a unified front at the Legislature. So it's really nice to see this craft Beverage Council come together and hopefully a lot of those silly little turf wars that go on within the industry can come to an end. Well, I think it z. You know, we're set up in a cage match. Um, you know the players in the industry and you know if there's a new assumption, which there is a Minnesota is that it's a zero sum game if the Legislature changes any rule. They're winners and losers. And so now the politicians are picking the winning companies versus the other companies. And so every company is in there, and every part of the industry's in there trying to say Hey, Either change the rule. Wait. No, don't change the role that will hurt us. And so your analogy of every you know the boat water going up in all boats floating up with it is probably something I would agree with. But That's not the given assumption that given assumption is there's X amount of gallons of water. One more. I get one on flat. Exactly. Dan. Just listen from a little pills brewing. Thank you so much. You got any cool events? Anything coming up? You want to promote before we let you go? Oh, yeah, this coming weekend? We're going to be releasing a new new beer. Uh, double back, And we're gonna be doing both Saturday and Sunday around two o'clock where you come in and get some of the new tap beer and we're going to do fire poking. If you never notified, poking felt that Zen experience that is some. Yes, that's awesome. That's if you're listening out there. And you don't know what fire poking is, Uh, you've never done fire booking didn't give him give me a quick 32nd explanation of isn't what we do with the Sam every sample. That's what she pokes us. Fire pokes. You tried to set me on fire. I would never you could buy him online. But You know, So maybe that's ah, upgrading the equipment she's using now, Fire poking is when you take a rich multi beer like a block and you heat up a metal rod. And you quickly insert it down into the beer. And you would think you would just tell Khumbu show all over the place. But it doesn't. What happens is it starts to bubble. Because of the C E 02 and that he Caramelizes some of the sugars in there on you'll get a quick foam head that created and that Rod that's going through the foam head then caramelized is also the foam and you end up with basically like a marshmallow on top. It's super cool. Visually, it tastes great on did a good thing to do outside in the fresh air, and you can stay warm by the fires and And we're gonna have a lot of fun. I hope a lot of you will come find us. You can find the address and all kinds of more information that on Facebook or other social media fall name is Judith Hill's Brewing. Maru pills, brewing calm and that is definitely not what Sam suggested subjects us, too, that it's definitely not even hers is painful hurts. It's painful years tasty. You might want to, you know, you know she knows about it. You know, you might wanna look out if she ends up walking in with one of those. I might. I might have to swing by and see you this weekend. And that sounds like a lot of fun. I'm really looking really looking forward to that. I would love to see And I think we owe each other a cigar at some point along the way here and I'll be there on Sunday and Eric are head Brewer will be there on Saturday doing the fire poking so you can pick your poison.

You can't get allowed to call it that. You know, That's what it is exactly what it is..

"Friends. Now this you talk about getting through the pandemic and being able Tosto be still survived and thrived as well as you can under the conditions, But there's been a lot of changes into regarding how you're allowed to operate over the course of this pandemic. Talk a little bit about some of the some of the changes that have been made over the course of this last year and the impact that they've had And would you want these to stick around even after the pandemic is over. Sure it's a great question. We're you know, we're looked at it. You know, we're finishing your in numbers and everything else and trying to, you know, figure out how to move forward from here. But In 2020 R Tap room was shut down for just approximately 30% of the year. Where we were unable to have anybody And now we are built to, you know, package beer and you know, distributed out into the marketplace. So you know, cans and stuff and liquor stars has gone well, Thank you. Everybody out there for picking up the bills that your favorite local shop, but draft beer was pretty much dead all year, and so It was a pretty rough year. We've had to make a lot of changes. You know, the pandemic is required. That we deal with safety issues. And you know, we've always has breweries always been concerned about sanitation and cleanliness and the rest But this has caused us all. Kick it up. Lot of notches uniquely for you to pills. We have extremely large tap room space, and we have an extremely loud outdoor space. So we've been probably luckier than many and that sense that when we are open, we can be Pretty busy on distill give people the sense of safety. For a lot of tap rooms. That isn't the case. You know, for a lot of tap rooms that not the case. Yeah, For what? I would even argue that for you know, and I don't know the numbers, but I would our I would guess that even for a majority of the tap rooms that you know that aren't in as many liquor stores as two pills is fortunate to be in and, you know, don't have the distributor that a lot of other tap rooms have. No shutting down shutting down their tower. A lot of the breweries have shutting down their tap room, which is a huge source of revenue and a huge source of profits. I mean, you might as well be shut down their entire production line, giving these tap rooms. The ability to sell beer to go over the course of this pandemic has been, you know, has been the only thing that's been able to keep some of these places open and there's any. I can't think of any good reason why you would want to know why you would want to stop that practice just because the pandemic has will eventually pass. Bye. Right. So I mean, you know for me And who the pills, you know our our preferences and Heard it from the last march. You know we would love to sell our products in the form that the consumer wants to buy it. You know, we would like to have that flexibility on but that's really what most so we're Gonna talk about the craft Beverage Council. I mean, you know, we belong to the Minnesota craft Beverage killed our brothers killed and we're partnering with other producers to try to get some permanent changes or temporary changes, even which we way failed out of when we went to Legislature before. To try to help the industries that produced here in Minnesota to be sold to Minnesotans. Now we know we had this the first time we've had a collaborative group coming together. 350. Minnesota wineries, Breweries, distillers. Ondo like coming together with this legislation with the goal of getting this bill in front of lawmakers the drink local economic recovery package. There's a lot built into this. What Dan is your What's your expectation? I mean, is this a circumstance? Where look, let's get as much in here that could benefit us as possible. We've got this coalition and then we hope to get something out of it. Or do you think there's even a possibility you could get most, if not everything out of this out of this bill. Well, I'm gonna say we've We've run our heads into the wall a few times up there. So we've tried to learn that to avoid that. And the feedback that we got was keep it simple. Get it to exactly what you must have. And so we've actually feel like this is a very winnow down law on Dat comes from the reality that Fertilize very unique compared to other states on go. There's a lot of very archaic parts to it. And so what we're trying to do is is not it. The elephants all in one bite, but two Take many bites and see if we can get some things that will help our businesses survive this Minnesota craft Beverage Council that's come together, talk a little bit about the how that how that came together because you had the Brewers guilt for a while. We've had no, the wineries have worked together. Some of the side trees have worked together. But this is you know, this is everybody sort of finally coming together and working towards a modernization. Of laws that would wouldn't just benefit a tap room or the craft, beer industry or Windows benefit a winery. I mean, there's all sorts of weird and somewhat and sometimes archaic laws and regulations that go into the production and distribution and selling of whatever your favorite Minnesota made. Beverage is whether it's a new two pills, beer or or or a bottle of vodka or or of side, ary. Whatever. Whatever it may be, You know they're having to navigate some These things can be really, really cumbersome for a lot of these things. It's and it's nice to see an organization get together that's focused on the the industry is an entirety and not just sort of this little niche here in this little niche there. Right. Well, what happened is, you know, they said, we've learned from our past experience is going up there and You know when we go there, you know, we're trying to compete with a million other industries and people that have an interest in getting something changed in the law. And so it's hard to get attention on day. So the idea if we could band together all the Minnesota businesses that produced We would have a bigger voice on. Do you know the challenges that you know? Alcohol laws, like many things have evolved, you know you get they happened over this year. That year, they changed this and it isn't a coherent, necessarily package and so we do struggle with weird oddities. No, the fact that you know only five brewers in the state compel Growlers the fact that the craft distillery can only tell you one small, odd bottle or the fact that for a brewery you we have to do a cross we canoe Prowler, so that's great..
