December 18, 2017 – The Beer Wars
The 15th annual Annapolis Summit will be held on January 10, 2018. As we countdown to the Summit we are covering issues that will be debated in the 2018 Maryland Legislative Session. One of those issues has been dubbed the “Beer Wars.” During the Session, Maryland Comptroller Peter Franchot will be entering a legislative initiative that would allow craft beer brewers to sell their beers without going through distributors. This is a complex issue that involves a number of factors including health and corporate control. Comptroller Franchot joined me in-studio first, and then I talked with Raimee Eck, the President of the Maryland Public Health Association.
