NO GODS, NO MASTERS!
I live in Southern Tennessee.What I fnd quite interesting, Jack Daniels has their only distillery about 10 miles from me - in a DRY county. I haven't had a drink of booze in 20 years. However, I would never be so intrusive as to tell anyone they couldn't drink it.
Blue laws and other restrictions on legal items has always been a point of contention between liberty and the ability of communities to govern themselves. I always fall towards liberty.I would wonder how many of these laws would be overturned if out directly to voters?
I would have expected to see a lot more yellow and red in Utah. Actually, Utah has great micro-breweries, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that fact when I visited Moab. The interesting thing I heard on the radio the other day was a mormon restaurant owner who said he didn't mind selling alcohol because it was good business, even though he had never had a drink in his life himself.I guess there is a legitimate concern with drunk driving, but no law can prevent that. People can brew in their own kitchens, and have been for thousands of years, so that is a losing battle.
