Today, we had the pleasure of opening our warehouse doors to Congressman Michael C. Burgess’ aides and teach them a bit about hobby distilling. Our owners, Rick and Dawn Morris, personally led Burgess’ Legislative Director, James Decker, and Legislative Counsel, David Lieberman, on a tour of our facility as they discussed distillation equipment and small businesses.
James and David were pleased to have the opportunity to get to know the people behind our small business and explore our facility. They were impressed to learn that in addition to distributing distillation equipment such as moonshine stills and distillation columns, we also produce our own turbo yeast and other additives right here on site, thanks to the fact that we maintain our Texas food manufacturing license.
The group also talked about the efforts of the Hobby Distiller’s Association (HDA) and followed up on Burgess’ safety concerns that they discussed in DC last month. James and David said that they’ve conducted a bit of research on their own and have had more discussions with Representative Burgess since they last spoke with Rick. They also said that the HDA is taking the correct approach in their efforts and even had a few additional suggestions on how to approach Congress.
We’d like to express our sincere thanks to James and David for visiting Brewhaus. They know that they are welcome back any time, and we look forward to keeping in touch with them!
