It's great that we have our economy expanding in this regard. People from other areas of the country will start paying attention and maybe they'll even come here to learn. Craft Beer schools, anyone?
The #1 reason people are in prison in Montana, however, is because of felony DUIs, so alcohol can also be a real double-edged sword here. I'm not sure a lot of those people doing time for that crime were drinking craft beers, however.
On another note, I can't help but think in 10 years Montana will be getting attention for another class of potent potables - marijuana.
Right now Colorado and Washington are getting the beat on us. For an agricultural state like Montana this is terrible. I sure hope we can get some sensible people in the next few years to lead the legalization effort and ensure Montana has a new cash crop to benefit our economy well into the future.
