Support Wisconsin Craft Brewers

    1. Petition by

      Edward Kranick

      Pewaukee, WI

Big distributers like Miller/Coors are pressuring GOP legislators to pass the anti-Wisconsin Craft Brewer "Branch Bill" as part of the state budget. Call or email your legislators NOW - today or tomorrow and tell them to support our hometown craft brewers - and oppose the "Branch Bill" that would put them out of business.

According to the Wisconsin Brewers Guild, Wisconsin beer brings 588,000 visitors annually, and invests millions in jobs and local communities. Local breweries purchase local grain from Wisconsin farmers, and raw materials such as boxes, labels, cans, and glass from Wisconsin companies.

      The intervention of large companies that lobby legislation with money fueled by greed must stop. This trend has been the mainstay as to how our rights and life are governed, no longer are we "for the people by the people" and that must change and will if we stand united as citizens. This is just one more example of what's really wrong at the core of our society. take action, make a stand!

      Dear Gov. Walker and (R) Legislators,

      While I applaud the great progress you have made recently in many areas here in Wisconsin, I am literally sickened by this piece of legislation. The gov. failed to veto it, it needs to be repealed now, for the sake of craft brewing.

      I am personally in the process of business planning a start-up craft brewery, and I can say for sure, that now that I know and understand what you have done in passing "Motion 414", that my business plan is in serious jeopardy of being not viable.

      So much for being "open for business", when you literally just shut the door on every player in the brewing industry (except for one: MillerCoors!). Tyranena's letter explains it, I hope you read it in detail.

      You all had my vote in 2010. Please fix this. If you don't, you will not get my vote again, nor my potential for business impact, here in Wisconsin.

      How can the State of Wisconsin turn its back on one of the key industries that made the State famous and prosperous?
