Detour From Beer: Micro-Distillers

Nice article in the LA Times about west coast brewers who are exploring the joys of microdistilling.

I am a huge fan of the craft distillery movement, although, sadly, I can't find much of the good stuff here in Iowa, thanks mainly to dumbass liquor laws.... As I mentioned in a previous blog entry, Bill Owens, who founded one of the first brewpubs, is also the guy behind the American Distilling Institute.

Thanks and a tip o' the mug to my pal David Fahey, who maintains the Daily Register at the Alcohol & Drugs History Society website.
