Happy Repeal Day!
Seventy-five years ago today a mistake was corrected when the 21st Amendment repealed Prohibition. This noteworthy event resulted in the current 3-tier distribution system and the host of legal challenges to it as it begins to show it’s age with technological and cultural changes making it increasingly archaic and in need of an update.
I support the fundamentals of the 3-tier system but it clearly needs some fine-tuning as the marketplace and relationships between suppliers-distributors-retailers has changed over the decades. Still, today is a day to celebrate the end of a great American mistake in social engineering. Raise your glass!
