“[The] beer and wine interests are among those pushing hardest to keep local distillers legislatively handcuffed,” writes C. Jarrett Dieterle, director of commercial freedom for the nonpartisan, public policy research organization R Street Institute. Combined, he says the industries make as much as $1.7 million in political donations each year. “[They] dress up their concerns in the language of prudence, but in reality, are most interested in handicapping a distilled spirits industry that could siphon off their business.”
