Congrats to this establishment. They are the first vendor in Somerset to sell beer and their business has been booming with large crowds. Dry forces, tell us again how beer sales in McCreary County would not dramatically improve the local economy.

I agree that this will be a boost in our economy. But don't allow yourselves to get jaded by this temporary boom of purchases just because people are excited about being able to get a beer now..

This behavior is natural and will certainly line some business owners pockets extremely well for a few weeks, if not a couple of months at best. But afterward, when the "newness" wears off, this will calm down and it will be business as usual. Right now it's a joyous novelty, almost a rebellion of sorts, lol. In a few months we'll simply blend in with the rest of the state.

What I'm also interested in seeing are some of the local outdoor venues getting with the program and offering cold ones during a seasonal event.. Somernites Cruise, the Master Musicians Festival, perhaps finally having some large scale concerts coming to "The Center", etc. That's another outlet where I'd like to see some progress.

Is it possible that we could even get a cold draft beer at our local flea markets sometime soon? It used to be so much fun when we lived in another state, going to the flea market on a Saturday afternoon and sipping a cold beer while we shopped the flea market.

Hopefully it will come.

I hope with the extra revenue they build nice things to share with us McCreayians when we visit their fair city.
