This sucks… it’s basically us against the world now? I like the world. I don’t think this was a very good call myself. I don’t want any more plastic. I don’t want plastic bags of beer.

This is crazy. We are all going to be homebrewing soon.
If this happens and you want homebrewing or winemaking tips let me know. I can help you! We are pretty great at making our own in Santa Barbara!
Drink beer in cans while you CAN!
Cheers till next time my friends!
