Bart Watson of the craft brewing industry group the Brewers Association posted this recently on the group’s website…definitely of interest to us here in the beer/pot capitol of the world:

There have been some reports in recent weeks which suggest that marijuana legalization is creating some drag on beer sales in states like Colorado, Washington, and Oregon (and there have also been reports arguing the opposite). Although I don’t purport to know what the long-term effects of marijuana legalization will be, I can say that I see no evidence that legalization has had an effect on beer sales in the short term.
