First, they came for the unions…then they came for the schools…then they came for the beer…and boy did people wake up then! In support of Wisconsin’s microbreweries, under attack from stifling legislation, local pubs dumped Miller/Coors beers – a Walker supporter and proponent of the legislation – down the drain. But wait – here’s a local Tavern League member getting into the mix…
‘Due to their recent attacks on the Tavern League of Wisconsin, we will no longer be carrying products brewed by New Glarus Brewing Company.
The Tavern League of Wisconsin leads the battle every day to protect your rights as a consumer of alcoholic beverages. It is our feeling that any organization that attacks and not applauds these efforts should not be supported.’
That’s the word from longtime Wausau establishment The Chatterbox Bar, as posted on their facebook page. They claim they’re standing up for you, but the bottom line is that this legislation is good for the big boys – the Tavern League and Miller/Coors – and bad for small business. Even ultra-conservatives like state senator Glenn Grothman and Wausau’s imported Walker puppet Pam Galloway think it’s bad. What do you say, Middle Wisconsinites?
