Last year I mentioned hoping we would do something to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of Pop The Cap and it is happening tonight at Tyler’s in Durham at 6 pm. I received an email invite from Julie Johnson of All About Beer to all the people who attended the very first meeting in February 2003 where we came together to get the ball rolling and change the law from 6% to something higher. From those humble beginnings and with the hard work of many the law was changed and we can now enjoy every beer with an ABV of 15% or less. We now have 140+ breweries operating and I am told another 40 in planning. And to think all we wanted was to be able to do was purchase beers with an ABV higher than 6% and the results is jobs and a full-fledged NC brewing industry. If you cannot make it tonight at the very least hoist a pint to celebrate!
