Ohio has been extremely friendly to craft brewers in recent years. (Allowing production breweries to open taprooms, lowering the annual licensing fee for them ...) Republican Gov. John Kasich, who's up for election this year against Democratic Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald, is reminding Ohioans of that in a new YouTube video sponsored by the Republican Governors Association.
In the two-minute video (see above), which is part of the association's American Comeback project, Kathleen Dewey, co-owner of Mt. Carmel Brewing Co., talks about how the new policies have helped the brewery. Kasich also mentions how he wants business owners to invest in Ohio. "It's becoming viewed as a safer and safer place to do that," Kasich says.
