Update on MillerCoors in Wisconsin

If you've been keeping score at home, I have made several posts regarding the debacle in Wisconsin regarding the MillerCoors backed legislation which is Motion 414.  Many are viewing this motion as a direct offensive move against the small breweries in Wisconsin and are blaming MillerCoors and/or the governor for it.  Well in a twist of fate MillerCoors will have to stop selling beer in the state of Minnesota.  The state government of Minnesota is shut down because apparently the kids in the sandbox can't make an agreement on a budget (sound familiar?).  Well MillerCoors has not renewed their license in the state and will now be unable to because of the shutdown.  State officials told the company it must come up with a plan to remove it's 39 brands from retialers/bars within days.  So it seems karma has swung around and bit MillerCoors right on their ass.  Unfortunately this is yet another example of a government in complete dysfunction and unable to accomplish what they are paid to do.  Again I utter the question, "When is enough, enough?".

I did some more research and found a couple of good links if anyone is interested in some of the details of this legislation.  I have provided those links at the bottom of the post.
