Beer Czar

October 1, 2010

Much ado has been made in recently months about President Obama’s various czars.  It is true, that he has appointed more czars for various different purposes thus far.  However, he isn’t alone, and edges out George W. Bush.  What many of you may not know is that the appointment of czars is nothing new: it’s a nearly 80-year-old tradition.

Seeing that Barack Obama is only about halfway into his first term, he may encounter a need for more czars.  In fact, I think that craft beer is one area that could benefit from the increased influence of the federal executive branch.  For too long, craft beer has been off the radar for most Americans.  This was painfully obvious at the so-called “Beer Summit” last year.  It is time to increase awareness of craft beer and the appointment of a beer czar is the way to do it.  Are you listening, Mr. President?

I hereby volunteer to serve my country and fellow citizens in this capacity.

    Hey, somebody’s got to do it! I’m sure it would be a thankless and difficult job, but its for the Country, right?

    No Tex, see you are far too level headed to actually be a beer czar. I’m thinking they will get someone like Auggie Busch to be czar. That way they can have all the “Experience” of a guy that has battled the beer wars “in the trenches” and won! That is the way the Federal Government thinks. Were better off with no czar…
