If we can get a list of MTA members, we can threaten to boycott their members unless the bill is pulled. Does anyone know how we can get this list?

The Montana Tavern Association Directors and Alternates, out of 32 positions of director, there are 10 vacancies and out of 32 alternates, 18 vacancies. These guys might not be that strong as feared, just got the right ear.

A friend wrote to the head of the Tavern Association asking for a list of members. The response was "We do not give out that information."

If you really want to track it down, I am sure state liqueur licenses are a part of public record. You can weed through that to start. I know if I were a resident, I'd start there. Then I would contact each member and politely ask them if they are a member and ask them where they stand. No threats if they are members who support it, just politely thank them for their time. Then you can form your list of whom to boycott. The best way to boycott isn't to advertise your cause, but to silently...

A true financial drop will get their attentions then just words. Just my opinion.

Aren't all Bar owners part of the Montana Tavern Association by right of having a liquor license? So if that is the case the bars won't be getting my business with out proof of non-partisanship

Wow a tavern assoc sounds like a small biz org, must be backed by the big boys, a sham org. Ironic, the small craft brews is all I'll drink anymore

The MTA seeks to use the legislative process to create an unfair business environment

Why anyone would want to pass more legislation to hurt small business and the jobs that they create is beyond me. Legislators should be working on lifting regulations in this state instead of creating more.

Time to take action! HB 616 is a death sentence to the small craft breweries many Montanans and our guests have come to love, and would severely limit new start ups.
Please take the time to sign the petition. Tony Herbert, executive director of the Montana Brewers Association will be presenting our case Tuesday, March 26th. Let's give him a long list of folks who think Breweries and the communities who frequent them shouldn't be messed with! Listen up Helena, "No" to HB 616.

Pehaps the MTA can take their sour grapes and open up a winery instead of trying to stiffle Montana Breweries. They do seem to like wine...
