THIS WEEK… DIRECT SALES COME TO GEORGIA!  What a time to be alive.  Finally, direct sales are coming to Georgia’s breweries starting Sept. 1st.  Nancy Palmer, Executive Director of the Georgia Craft Brewers Guild and Taylor Harper of Taylor, Feil, Harper, Lumsden & Hess, aka “The Georgia Craft Beer Lawyer” joined us in the studio to talk about the fight to get to this point and what’s in store for the future.
