Like Champagne And France, Vermont Beer Is Only From Vermont

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning, I'm Steve Inskeep with facts about alcohol. Scotch whisky is made in Scotland. Bourbon is made in America. Years ago, Congress formally said bourbon is America's native spirit. Now some, but not all brewers, want Vermont beer made in Vermont. The Vermont Brewers Association is protesting out-of-state brewers who capitalize on the name. But, come on, don't be so literal. I mean, who wouldn't want a Vermont Farmhouse Ale made in Berkeley, Calif.? It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
