The Unreal Cost of Getting a Cold Brew
Ever wonder what it would be like to be a beer smuggler? Yes, there’s such a thing in Venezuela. Apparently, producing, transporting, distributing and selling craft beer is considered illegal in the country. Sinners be warned!
It all comes down to volume restrictions. According a new mini-doc called Ride Along With An Illegal Beer Smuggler In Venezuela, microbreweries in Venezuela are not given proper liquor licenses and therefore are considered illegal. Penalties for distributing and producing can range from heavy fines to 3-5 years in prison.
Produced by Seeker Stories, the doc gives audiences an in-depth look at the men that risk their livelihood to transport craft beer across Venezuela. ?
