    Jackson, let me speak for the majority of the regulars on these comment sections:
    They don't want you to speak for them. :)

    Jackson,

    How could you possibly know the majority of the regulars here have no ties to AZ nor are they interested in what goes on in AZ?

    Thank you Darrell. Incidently, Total Wine also carries beer and hard liquor. It's only a half a block away from BevMo. My point about Total Wine is they carry more of everything than BevMo. They probably have different distributors that have more Lodi wines. Jackson Scott is right about me in one sense. I do miss Lodi, from time to time, that is. Guilty as charged. :)

    Brian... now that it has been made clear that Jackson is the anointed one that speaks for this mystical group of regulars, his opinion holds much more weight than that of the average poster. How impressive! He must be proud to hold that esteemed position.

    However, I do find it very odd that he referenced Arizona as if you were making a point about Arizona.
    Correct me if I am mistaken, but I took it you were talking about stores that economically benefit Lodi, not Arizona. You also were pointing out that it is a good thing for people who are concerned with Lodi's economy to buy products made in Lodi in order to benefit the local economy.
    You could be living in China or Arizona and still wish Lodians well. You would think someone of Jackson's high position in Lodi that has the ear of many would appreciate someone like yourself that decides to buy Lodi products even though you no longer live here.
    I'm sure Jackson has his reasons even though they appear to be inexplicable.

    Brian, let me speak for the majority of the regulars on these comment sections: we dont care about what goes on in Arizona. We don't live there. You obviously miss Lodi.

    As for BevMo, who cares? I don't drink much distilled spirits, I only drink Lodi wine, and I don't buy beer by the case (although I understand they have an outstanding craft beer section in 6-packs). Will I drive out to Kettleman Lane to save fifty cents on six beers? No.

    There's a liguor warehouse chain here in Phoenix called Total Wine that carries at least a dozen labels from Lodi. it seems to me BevMo doesn't not because they can't but because they won't. I now shop at Total Wine since I found out Lodi wines aren't very common at BevMo.
