Promoting Local Biz with Non-Local Products

Good reporting by The Observer about a local non-profit using Andrews Beverages (Miller-Coors’ controlled distribution company) as the sponsor. Apparently they didn’t even think to ask any of the local breweries, even though they aim to promote local businesses. Nice job Downtown Dallas Inc. Maybe those of us who enjoy local businesses should let the folks at DDI know that if they want to see Dallas thrive, like we all know it is very capable of, then they should probably promote our unique local businesses instead of the same ole stuff we can find in any and every market across the US! I know I’ll be contacting them, and you should too.

About dfwbeerscene

I am a beer nut. I drink it all the time, I brew it as much as humanly possible, and if I'm not doing either of the first two, I'm probably thinking about it. So as a beer nut, I've always followed the limited beer scene in DFW, and up until recently, there wasn't a whole lot to discuss. Well now there sure is! As many of you already know, DFW and its surrounding areas is having a bit of a beer renaissance. Every month last year I'd hear about more and more breweries "in development" and I'd scurry the web to find out where I can monitor their progress. And that, is what I intend to do with this blog. So now a little bit about myself: I am an environmental scientist by trade, but as of January 2011 I have made the decision to become a professional brewer. Since then, I applied and was accepted to the American Brewers' Guild CraftBrewers Apprenticeship Program and am scheduled to begin in June 2013.
