Andy Crouch and "Local"

As I've said here before, I'm a big fan of the two Andys (McLeod and Crouch). They're both smart and both lean toward the contrarian, which is always fine by me. I've been thinking about beer more than usual lately (having not thought about it much at all for the past year because my brain was immersed in meat). I'm only slightly on top of the various moves, maneuvers, and shuffles of various industry players in the past few months. But there have been some and yes, they're worth thinking about. In this recent post, A. Crouch looks at the to-do over the Big Moves by Small Brewers and ponders the meaning of "local."
