KUOW piece on farmers market alcohol tasting

Wade Bennett gives potential customers tastes of hard ciders and berry wines

Wherever you see alcohol deregulation, Wade Bennett is there. He was instrumental in the development of a program to test beer and wine tastings at farmers markets. He was behind the failed ballot measure to deregulate hard liquor distribution. By baby steps, the libertarian farmer hopes to reduce the Washington State Liquor Control Board into an enforcement and educational agency, nothing more.

I interviewed Bennett for a strange little story I did about Beer and Wine tastings in farmers markets. Give it a listen: it starts out like a typical farmers market story, then explores some unexpected territory.
