A year later, I don’t like harping on the past. It’s so much more exciting to envision the here and now…and the future of craft beer in North Carolina.
But with ditties like this one…who can resist a trip down Nostalgia Alley?

Kerr supporting his opponent?
Sometimes the stories about politicians seem almost too funny to be real, but one of our most reliable sources swears this one is the â€œSunday School Gospel Truth.â€
Todd Siebels is the Republican candidate challenging incumbent Senator John Kerr in District 5. It isnâ€™t at all unusual that the two had not formally met, but a fundraiser for the Wayne County Sheriff appeared the perfect opportunity.
Wearing his â€œSeibels for Senateâ€ campaign button, Todd decided the time was right and went over to Kerr, stuck out his hand and said, â€œSenator Kerr, Iâ€™m Todd Siebels and Iâ€™m running, so I thought I would say hello.â€ Kerr responded in the typical politician way by saying, â€œThatâ€™s great. Itâ€™s good to meet you and you can count on my support.â€ You could have knocked Siebels over with a pin. The stunned Siebels responded, â€œO really? Youâ€™re going to vote for me?â€ Without hesitation, Kerr said, â€œYes, I sure will,â€ then paused and asked, â€œNow, who is it you are running against?â€
â€œYOU,â€ retorted Siebels. We can only surmise Kerrâ€™s reaction. We can understand candidates not paying attention to what their opponent is doing, but not even knowing his name?
Good luck, Senator Kerr! We’re voting just as you are.
