Free The Booze!'s Weekly Roundup

Welcome to "Free the Booze,"'s new weekly newsletter! Each week, we will bring you the latest news, commentary, and research on efforts to reform the policies that regulate alcoholic beverages and stifle entrepreneurs in the drinks industry.

Our goal is to foster a community of individuals and groups involved in the world of alcohol—brewers, distillers, vintners, bartenders, and retailers—and everyone in between. We want to hear your stories and experiences with alcohol laws and regulations and how they affect your day-to-day business. Please feel free to reach out to our editor, Jarrett Dieterle, with tips and stories about drink reform efforts (or anything else!). is a project of the R Street Institute. We are the only national think tank with a dedicated alcohol policy team. In fact, we like to style ourselves as the nation's first "Drink Tank." We favor rational alcoholic beverage policies that respect individual freedom, free enterprise, and the public well-being. You can see some of our work on alcohol policy here. Join us in our effort by receiving (and promoting!) our newsletter, following us on Twitter and Facebook, and checking out our website Together we can #FreeTheDrinks!
