The Wrong Way To Manufacture Alcoholic Beverages
Alcoholic Beverages Require Responsibility
There’s a right way and a wrong way to manufacture and sell alcoholic beverages. Here is a statement from California’s Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control showing you how one business did it the wrong way:
“On December 10, 2015, search warrants were served at the unlicensed business and at the suspect’s residence. At the business address, two illegal stills, 200 gallons of illegal distilled spirits, and over 500 cases of illegally produced wine were seized by Agents. At the residence, more than 40 illegal and unregistered firearms and components were seized, including fully-automatic assault rifles, grenade launchers and gun silencers.”
The privilege to manufacture alcoholic beverages — spirits, beer, wine, etc.
—comes with great responsibility. There is a reason businesses must go through the proper channels and obtain the appropriate licenses. This particular instance is clear evidence of criminal activity, but remember that the unlicensed manufacture of alcoholic beverages, even without the weapons, is still illegal.
Friends, just be smart. I am certain that none of you are involved with criminal activity, but it doesn’t take a grenade launcher to piss off the ABC — just some unlicensed booze.
