We in Colorado have an initiative coming up this fall that will do away with a prohibition-era law allowing grocery stores to sell 3.2% (by weight) beer but not full strength beers and table wines. In its place, the corner grocery will be selling full strength beers which means the craft beers, and the table wines.
The craft beer industry opposes this as the groceries will not carry everybody's brews and the liquor stores back this since a large part of their business seems to involve craft beers and vin ordinaire for the masses.
It has been widely suggested that if the groceries begin selling this sort of stuff, they will be selling at a significant discount versus the liquor stores which would be a win for drinkers.
Groceries do not have unlimited shelf space so what would be created would be an A-list of products that would make the grocery list and a B-list of smaller volume products relegated to the liquor stores. One craft brewery has joined the open markets gang and is being blacklisted by the liquor stores.
St. Patricks Brewing Co. located in my own 'burb of Littleton has come down on the side of the free market.
Haven't been there. May have to visit soon. The website looks like they operate similarly to Boggy Draw with beer on the inside and a food truck on the outside.
