How Homebrewers Revolutionized American Beer

For Do-It-Yourself brewers, Prohibition lasted until 1978. But once unleashed, they revolutionized the industry.

If you’re looking for a textbook example of how government can stifle innovation and discourage productive activity, even when operating in Regulatory Lite mode, the story of home brewing in America should hit the spot.

So Jimmy Carter deregulated beer and air travel. He is moving up rapidly in my ratings.

Imagine...when the government gets out of the way, business flourishes.

It makes total sense that lame, mass-produced beer (which still dominates the US beer market) resulted from government mandate. But that freedom from it came from Jimmy Carter? That's the shocker.

The masses still choose junk, but the rest of us surely do have choice now.
