and a Raised Bar!

We’ve all heard the phrase “A rising tide lifts all boats.” It’s actually one of my favorite all-time quotes.

When I think about rising tides I don’t think of it so much from an economy standpoint as I do a quality standpoint and shared knowledge. That is what floats my boat. That’s why we support local, wherever and whenever we can. We’ve all seen the memes that encourage us to drink local. That’s often because local is better. Really, what’s better than fresh beer straight from the tap? And better yet, doing business with someone you know.

I’ve always thought of it as meaning we help each other be more, and along way we all grow so all are elevated through our shared “rising of the tide.

We all know this, but as a reminder, when you shop with local businesses, whether they be brewers, restaurants, artists, or retail stores, you are supporting local business, namely your community, friends, families, and neighbors.

That’s why we wanted to take a minute and introduce you to a few of our supporters. If you’re a Vegas local, we have no doubt that many of you will already know some of them. If that’s the case, tell them we said “hello.”

The aphorism “a rising tide lifts all boats” is associated with the idea that an improved economy will benefit all participants, and that economic policy, particularly government economic policy, should therefore focus on broad economic efforts.

We’re grateful to our new advertisers. Their support makes it possible for us to create, print, and distribute our publication to you for free.

So when you’re thinking about craft beer, or fine art, or Lamborghinis, look here first. Maybe we know someone who can make your day!

If our endorsements sound biased (in full disclosure, and like we mentioned earlier), then you’re probably correct. That’s because as we continue to better know our fellow beer community, the more they become friends. When you shop local, you are supporting friends.

When you do that, you are raising the tide for all.

Cheers to that!
