The decades old State certified protectionism is alive and well in the booze distribution industry.

Republican Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald called for creating a new Office of Alcohol Beverages Enforcement, headed by an "alcohol czar" appointed by the governor. That position would have broad powers to issue alcohol permits, make warrantless arrests and confiscate illegal booze.

The bill also called for issuing a special permit to Kohler American Resort to ease the distillation and selling of its chocolate brandy.

But the measure drew a swift and loud negative response from the nation's largest brewers and some of the state's smaller craft brewers, wineries and distillers.

Illegal Booze? Shouldn't that be 'undocumented booze'? LOL

The position also would be a lackey for the distributor bosses who have succesfully, over the years, made sure they got a cut on every drop of booze produced and sold in Wisconsin.
